The Jewish Presence in Twentieth Century American Literature, 1900-1940s
By (author) Louis Harap
Creative Awakening by Louis Harap
Book DescriptionAround the turn of the century, the United States was still experiencing the mass migration of millions of Jews and other immigrants escaping oppression and poverty in Europe. Set against this historical backdrop, author Louis Harap examines the development of the Jewish American, as both writer and character, from 1900 to the 1950s. Creative Awakening traces fifty years' development of Jewish American fiction, poetry and humor, as it analyzes fictional portrayals of Jews themselves.
