Lang defines silences as omissions that take many types, together with using italics and citation marks, ellipses and clean pages in poetry, and the presence of unreliable narrators in fiction. whereas this boundaries the reader’s skill to learn in any traditional experience, those silences aren't flaws. they're as an alternative a serious presence that forces readers to recognize how phrases and which means can diverge within the face of occasions as incredible as these of the Holocaust.
