To Finish off with Remembrances. A Homage to Patrick Modiano

Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 76 (4):811-821 (2014)

By way of ”homage’, this article discusses the very peculiar worldview in the novels of French writer and so-called ”post-Proustian novelist’ Patrick Modiano, who won the Nobel prize in 2014. It will more specifically explore the singular atmosphere of his works and try to illustrate what has been called his ”art of memory’. Special attention will be directed toward what many have considered to be his major work, i.e., Dora Bruder, in which the author aims to reconstruct the life of a 15-year-old Jewish girl who was a victim of the Holocaust in 1943.
