dc.description.abstractThis work examines the development of Primo Levi’s thinking throughout his career as a writer. The available research materials were his collected literary works, transcribed interviews, and various critical essays and books. Levi’s anthology and another book on numerous chemical elements were the most essential resources for this study, both being very autobiographical in nature. Significant information has been gleaned from Levi’s other writings. The foundational linkages between Levi and Job, the classical sufferer, are treated at length. Also, the impact of the printed word on Levi throughout his life is analyzed. Models for Levi’s reasoning patterns show how he fits in with some great thinkers in history. Finally, Levi is shown to be, not so much a moralist, but more than that, one whose sensitive but unpretentious humble suggestions to mankind are being well-received twenty years after his death.
