The ‘Gift’ of Memory, Writing and Death in the Work of Jorge Semprún
A talk by Ofelia Ferran (Spanish and Portuguese, University of Minnesota).
Semprún's most celebrated work, "La vida o la escritura", is an autobiographical work that narrates Semprún's captivity in the Buchenwald concentration camp from 1943 to 1945. His work found resonance with scholars studying issues such as trauma studies, memory, autobiography, Marxism (Semprún was an active member of the Spanish communist party) and psychoanalytic and post-structuralist theories of anxiety and death.
