Here and Now
History, Nationalism, and Realism in Modern Hebrew Fiction

 
Todd Hasak-Lowy

Cloth $29.95s    |    978-0-8156-3157-6    |    2008

Description
The emergence of Zionism in the late nineteenth century and the evolution of Zionist society in Palestine were profoundly influenced by the Hebrew literature of the day. As Todd Hasak-Lowy cogently argues in this book, Hebrew authors wrote with the belief that accurately representing Jewish society—including its history—in their texts would both record the past and establish its future course.

Hasak-Lowy traces the tensions between the extraliterary—the historical, social, and political—and the literary—the aesthetic, formal, and stylistic—in Hebrew fiction. Focusing on canonical texts by S. Y. Abramovitz, Y. H. Brenner, S. Y. Agnon, and S. Yizhar, the author establishes how modern Hebrew writers galvanized Jewish nationalism in nineteenth-century Europe and later articulated its character in twentieth-century Palestine.
