The book as an actor in the theatre of memory

Author(s): Grzegorz Leszczyński
Subject(s): Language and Literature Studies
Published by: Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Śląskiego
Keywords: Postmemory; book; emotions of readership
Summary/Abstract: Memory is used in literature as „the guarantee of the genuineness” of events. Due to this fact, it happens to be used as a tool of indoctrinating the reader: relying on their own or generational memory, writers valorise some facts and ignore or diminish the role of others. A book as a form of transferring memory has been discredited. The only literary way to pass down to the younger generation the truth about the experiences of the older generation is by unleashing the emotions of readership.
