Sebald and Grossman: Parallel Ambitions

Debate

The literary projects of German writer W. G. Sebald and Israeli writer David Grossman are united by the themes they address (memory, migration, travel, holocaust) and their relevance and ambition. Carles Torner will be talking to the author of master works such as See under: Love and To the End of the Land about the way German and Israeli literature dealt with Nazism in the late 20th century, conflicts between personal memory and collective history, about consciousness and what it means to write in a war zone: writing in an ancient and modern language, and about how to represent the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Participants: David Grossman, Carles Torner
