Primo Levi is best known as a memoirist of Auschwitz, but he was also a scientist, fiction writer, and poet: in short, a Renaissance man.  Primo Levi’s Universe offers a multi-faceted portrait of the heroic man who turned the concentration camp experience into beautiful yet terrifying literature. Over time, Levi developed an original world-view which he conveyed in his writing.  Through careful readings of Levi’s works, Sam Magavern finally does justice to his calm rationality, dark poetry, essential beliefs and wit.  Levi's art and life are inextricably intertwined, and this book presents them together, allowing each to shed light on the other.
