(p.179) Conclusion
Forging the Past

Daniel Marrone

University Press of Mississippi

This brief concluding chapter summarizes and synthesizes the arguments of the previous chapters, placing them in context with each other. Emphasis is placed on the role of the reader in filling narrative gaps, and the ways in which Seth creates a space for the reader’s interpolation. Ultimately, Seth’s work turns the medium of memory on itself, using it as an instrument to examine longing, loss, and the processes of remembrance and making history.
