Languages of publication

EN
The present study deals with the interpretation of Philip Roth’s most experimental novel The Counterlife, considered by many critics as the best text of Roth’s postmodern period. The novel is an exploration of various attempts to start a new — different life, and each of its five chapters presents a new way, thus denying the preceding chapter. There are several key themes in the novel: the exploration and defence of the writer’s own poetics, and, above all, reflections on Jewish identity, its roots, and by what it is formed.
