Abstract

The greater purpose in "The Ethics of After: Melvin Jules Bukiet, Holocaust Fiction, and the Reemergence of an Ethical Sense in the Post-Holocaust World" is to interconnect Melvin Jules Bukiet's current fictional and theoretical discussions with those of late postmodern theory. In doing so, this piece forges a connection between theory and Holocaust literature in an effort to highlight an emerging discussion within Holocaust literature that asks the reader to move beyond the ineffability of the event and work towards a new understanding of what can be gained from Holocaust study in a 21⁵¹-century culture. Particularly, the new understanding to be gained is that of an ethical sense that is developing within the fictional and theoretical writings of current crackpot realists.
