"H. G. Adler: Life, Literature, Legacy "is the first collection of essays in English dedicated to the life and work of German-language author H. G. Adler. Among the international scholars of German, Jewish, and Holocaust literature and history who reveal the range of Adler s legacy across genres are Adler s son, Jeremy Adler, and Peter Filkins, translator of Adler s trilogy, "Panorama, "("The Journey").Together, the essays examine Adler s writing in relation to his life, especially his memory as a survivor of the Nazi death camps and his posthumous recognition for having produced a Gesamtkunstwerk, an aesthetic synthesis of the Shoah. The book carries the moral charge of Adler s work, moving beyond testimony to a complex dialectic between fact and fiction, exploring Adler s experiments with voice and the ethical work of literary engagement with the Shoah."
