Contemporary Jewish Writing in Europe by Vivian Liska

Book Description

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.

When Kafka Says We by Vivian Liska When Kafka Says We, Hardback (June 2009)

Taking as its starting point Franz Kafka's complex relationship to Jews and to communities in general, this title explores the ambivalent responses of major German-Jewish writers to self-enclosed social, religious, ethnic, and ideological groups. It presents an analysis that uncovers provocative attitudes and insights on a subject of controversy.
