Contemporary Jewish Writing in Europe : A Guide Hardback
Edited by Vivian Liska, Thomas Nolden
Part of the Jewish Literature and Culture series
With contributions from a dozen American and European scholars, this volume presents an overview of Jewish writing in post-World War II Europe.
Striking a balance between close readings of individual texts and general surveys of larger movements and underlying themes, the essays portray Jewish authors across Europe as writers and intellectuals of multiple affiliations and hybrid identities.
Aimed at a general readership and guided by the idea of constructing bridges across national cultures, this book maps for English-speaking readers the productivity and diversity of Jewish writers and writing that has marked a revitalization of Jewish culture in France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, and Russia.
