IRIS MILNER(Tel Aviv): A Wandering Vaudeville. Levi's Spectacle of a Voyage Home and Initiation into Art in >The Truce<.

This essay argues that the nostos narrative of the ›The Truce‹ should be read as both Levi’s ac-count of his homecoming as a parallel journey into the realm of art, and as Levi’s recognition that the artistic representation of the Holocaust is not only practicable, viable, but also an ethical duty.
