This book offers a collection of essays in literary and cultural studies. The articles explore a wide range of distinct problems and texts with the aim to question the already known and to interrogate the realms of ethics, literature, history and cultural identities. The contributors not only revive the meanings and values as they were lived at the time of creating the specific works, but also point to the ways in which these meanings continue to function for contemporary readers.

In search of one’s identity: Christopher Nolan’s Memento (2000)
Abstract: This article offers an analysis of the identity problems of the protagonist of Christopher Nolan’s Memento (2000). The figure of Leonard and the use of the neo-noir conventions are analysed as reflecting the fragmentation, instability, and sense of lostness which have been seen by critics as characteristic for postmodern identity.
