Silence – Voice – Representation

(p.159) Chapter 8 Silence – Voice – Representation
Social Theory after the Holocaust

Heidrun Friese

Liverpool University Press

This chapter contains an essay by Heidrun Friese that discusses how Paul Celan, Primo Levi, and Sarah Kofman embark on the relations, connection, similarities in partitions, and communicating boundaries between silence, voice, and representation. Friese emphasizes that her essay does not aim to engage in theoretical discussions, propose a thesis, or develop a model which relates to voice and representation, but rather to listen to the mentioned authors and mark their voice and their silence. The essay culminates by questioning not speaking or being silent, but rather language and a writing that is at the limits or boundaries of language; a writing that is conscious of the silence of the voices before, within, and between the words.

Keywords:   Silence, Voice, Representation, language, Paul Celan, Primo Levi, Sarah Kofman, words
