I argue that the dissolution of language and syntax, along with structural disorder and issues of perspective such as blended, almost undistinguishable narrative voices, contribute to deconstruct the trauma of survivorship and work towards comprehension and healing. These extreme formal strategies challenge the reader to actively participate in an innovative, albeit controversial type of literariness, which uses paradox, absurdity, repetition and specific symbolism as further means to defamiliarise and re-order cataclysmic events. Additionally, I contend that the metatextual approach involved in the process of fictionalising lived experience fuels the debate related to the abstractisation of memory and to the legitimacy of rewriting memory into autobiographic fiction. I also maintain that the interaction of the child survivor’s narrative voice with that of the adult narrator’s autobiographic ruminations speaks for the post-traumatic splitting of the self, which also functions as a de-habituation of the reader from mainstream perceptions of survivorship.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/25159"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-12-11T08:07:50Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Botez, Catalina</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Botez, Catalina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Post-Holocaust Interactions : Means of Defamiliarising Reality in Raymond Federman’s 'The Voice in the Closet'</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>2013</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
