Polish Jewish Literature in the Interwar Years

Eugenia Prokop-Janiec

Cloth $24.95s    |    0-8156-2984-2    |   2002

Foremost among a recent wave of Polish books on Jewish issues, this groundbreaking work rectifies long-held misconceptions about Polish Jewish writers.

"Engenia Prokop-Janiec has produced an indispensable study of the literature written by Polish Jews in the interwar period. . . . There have been very few studies that systematically address such important issues as the history of Jewish literature, the Jewish press, or Jewish education. Prokop-Janiec's work is more than a step in the right direction; it is an excellent example of the work of the finest of a new generation of Polish scholars in the field of Jewish studies. . . . Prokop-Janiec's work highlights the process of acculturation for Jews in interwar Poland. This acculturation has long been recognized, but only detailed studies such as this one indicate the extent of acculturation and the personal costs involved . . . Polish-Jewish Literature in the Interwar Years , essential for both literary scholars and historians of the period, aids us in understanding how Jewish writers helped to form the linguistic community and how their work changed both Polish and Jewish Cultures."
