"The essays in this volume take as their starting point the strivings of imaginative writing to surmount this problem and the search for ways to connect past experience to the present and future: if we do not learn the lessons of history we risk repeating its tragic mistakes. The book leaves us with the message that literature might have a unique role to play in this respect."--Jacket.
