Item description for Sites of the Uncanny: Paul Celan, Specularity and the Visual Arts (Interdisciplinary German Cultural Studies 3) (Interdisciplinary German Cultural Studies) by Eric Kligerman...
"Sites of the Uncanny: Paul Celan, Specularity and the Visual Arts" is the first book-length study that examines Celan s impact on visual culture. Exploring poetry's relation to film, painting and architecture, this study tracks the transformation of Celan in postwar German culture and shows the extent to which his poetics accompany the country's memory politics after the Holocaust. The book posits a new theoretical model of the Holocaustal uncanny evolving out of a crossing between Celan, Freud, Heidegger and Levinas - that provides a map for entering other modes of Holocaust representations. After probing Celan s critique of the uncanny in Heidegger, this study shifts to the translation of Celan s uncanny poetics in Resnais' film "Night and Fog," Kiefer s art and Libeskind s architecture.
