"Les Parisiens comme ils sont est un ouvrage non seulement délicieux, mais aussi très actuel. On jurerait que, d'un jet, vous l'avez composé ce matin. los angeles ville v est telle qu'on y vit. Ses habitants, nous venons de les croiser. Ses modes vestimentaires, culinaires ou littéraires, nous en subissons chaque jour les séductions en même temps que les diktats. Quel nouvel observateur vous faites, cher Honoré ! Quel oeil, quel pif, quelle major !" JERÔME GARCIN

The story then develops into a reflection on how best to confront such criminals: should they be hounded and persecuted, or should the search for vengeance be halted? The threats of violence made by the former block leader at the story's end might suggest that the criminals remain unchanged and unrepentant; the narrator's failure to summon the police could be read as indicating the futility or sterility of the desire for revenge. But such a reading makes sense of the story too easily. It extracts a moral message at the expense of psychological complexity.

To communicate with the reader, the Holocaust writer must at least in part follow linguistic and literary conventions; but to follow such conventions is also to distort the truth of what is being communicated. " 10 The Holocaust has given rise to a wide range of literary responses. The chapters of Ezrahi's By Words Alone are devoted to seven broad categories: documentary literature, which sticks as close as possible to factual detail; concentrationary realism, which deals with experiences in the death camps; literature of survival, which describes the lives of survivors of the death camps; texts within the tradition of Jewish lamentation literature; Jewish texts concerned with the covenantal implications of the Holocaust; texts that mythologize the Holocaust; and works written by authors who were not themselves in the death camps.

At one moment Wiesel approaches a justification of his procedure when he imagines what those concerned with the Eichmann trial should say in order to acquire the right to judge and attain the "valid moral levelthat of absolute truth": "Before judging others we must first recognize our own errors, our own weaknesses" (Chant, 183). Only by his own acknowledgment of guilt, then, is the speaker empowered to assert and Page 14 judge the guilt of others. The legal implications of the title "Plaidoyer pour les morts" suggest an analogy between the speaker and a lawyer with a case to argue; this contrasts with the narrator of "Une vieille connaissance" who found himself persuaded by both defense and prosecution lawyers, unable to judge one case against the other, and ultimately made powerless by the resultant indecision (see Chant, 6364).
