Abstract and Keywords

The heuristic value of Primo Levi's approach to living and writing is evident by the different ways scholars in various disciplines are using his writings. This bibliography on the scholarly writings about Primo Levi analyzes him in a substantial way within a comparative framework. Some studies have not been included because they only touch upon Levi, deriving inspiration from his work but placing the main focus elsewhere. The bibliography includes listings of material published through the summer of 2010. It is organized into five thematic sections. The last three are closely related because the interconnectedness of Levi's life and work, fiction and nonfiction, makes the placing of a citation in one section as opposed to another, at times, an arbitrary exercise.

Keywords:   Primo Levi, bibliography, scholarly writings, fiction, nonfiction

The heuristic value of Primo Levi's approach to living and writing is evident by the different ways scholars in various disciplines are using his writings. Increasingly, the study of Primo Levi is not only the purview of literary critics and historians. Through an exploration of Levi's work, some psychologists, philosophers, and chemists are starting to gain new insights in their own fields of study. The ready availability of Levi's works in English, and the enormous scholarly attention given to his life and work by English language scholars contributes to what appears to be a world-wide “Levi phenomenon” whereby Levi speaks to many people, about many things, on many levels. Perhaps a sign of the growing international recognition of Levi as a major writer and thinker of the twentieth century is his inclusion in the Cambridge Companion series, in Robert S. C. Gordon's important volume (2007). The appearance of an authoritative English edition of Levi's complete works, scheduled to be published by Norton in 2012, will only solidify his global reputation as not only an eminent Italian-Jewish writer and Holocaust survivor and witness, but also as a first-rate European intellectual and moral philosopher.

The bibliography that follows is an update to my “Bibliography of English and Italian Scholarly Writings on Primo Levi, 1985–2002,” published in The Legacy of Primo Levi, edited by Stanislao G. Pugliese. Both (p.221) bibliographies are part of a larger project upon which I am working, whose goal is an annotated bibliography on the scholarly writings about Primo Levi from the past twenty-five years. The citations here are to scholarly writings whose main focus is on Levi, or that analyze Levi in a substantial way within a comparative framework. Some studies have not been included because they only touch upon Levi, deriving inspiration from his work but placing the main focus elsewhere. The bibliography includes listings of material published through the summer of 2010.

The bibliography is organized into five thematic sections. The last three are closely related because the interconnectedness of Levi's life and work, fiction and nonfiction, makes the placing of a citation in one section as opposed to another, at times, an arbitrary exercise. Nevertheless, the intent is to group studies together with others of a similar subject matter whenever possible. “Works by Primo Levi” lists newly published or translated books written by Levi, as well as important new editions of previously published work. “Edited Collections of Essays” provides complete citations for important conferences or books of essays devoted to Levi. “Biographical Studies” lists entries that are mostly about the events in Levi's life, or that are of a general or summary nature. “Studies on Memory, Testimony, and the Holocaust” includes scholarship on the important historical role that Levi plays as a witness to, and chronicler of, the Holocaust. “Critical Studies” groups the rest of the Levi scholarship together, most of which analyzes his literary contributions and reputation, or compares him to other writers. Also included are studies of a more eclectic nature.

Notes that have been taken from the publication being cited are indicated in angle brackets, while my own notes are in curly braces.
