About This Event
In 2015, The Complete Works of the Italian writer and Holocaust survivor, Primo Levi, was published in an impressive three-volume set. The collection, which came out almost thirty years after Levi’s untimely death in 1986, confirmed his reputation as one of the most important witnesses of the Nazi genocide. But it was Toni Morrison’s introduction to the new collection that seemed to solidify his status as a writer of global importance. In this short course, we’ll discuss some of Levi’s celebrated stories, poems, and memoirs to better understand his evolution from Holocaust writer to literary giant.
