  • Salvage Poetics: S.Y. Agnon’s A Guest for the Night1
    • Abstract: <p>By Sheila E. Jelen</p> In their now-classic anthology, Writing Culture: The Poetics and Politics of Ethnography, James Clifford and George E. Marcus focus on “the making of ethnographic texts” and look “critically at one of the principal things ethnographers do—that is, write.” 2 Clifford and Marcus’s landmark collection is focused on how culture is inscribed in language; every field study written as the result of a course of ethnographic observation and study, must be considered, first and foremost, as a text. Around the same time that anthropologists sought to understand the role of literary consciousness in the writings of ethnographies, literary scholars were looking for anthropological tools to use in order to extrapolate culture ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Material Visions: The Poetry and Collage of Leah Goldberg’s Native
    • Abstract: <p>By Barbara Mann</p> In a diary entry from 1937, Leah Goldberg, living in Tel Aviv, and generally basking in the warm critical reception afforded upon her arrival in the city two years earlier, makes this offhand speculation: “By the way,” she writes, “why have I recently stopped loving Jesus'”1 Goldberg, a Lithuanian native, was a leading figure of the moderna, the first wave of Hebrew modernist poetry in Palestine, and also a prolific translator from Russian, German, French, and Italian; in addition to nine volumes of poetry, she published several novels, a number of plays, volumes of literary scholarship, journalistic essays, and a series of books for children which have become classics. These works, as well as her diaries, are ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The End of “Language Wanderings'” Yiddish in David
           Grossman’s Ayen erekh: ahava and Aharon Megged’s Foiglman
    • Abstract: <p>By Yael Chaver</p> khanelen a matonele be-ahava1 The mid-1980s saw the publication in Israel of two Hebrew novels in which Yiddish figures largely: David Grossman’s Ayen erekh: ahava (See Under: Love) and Aharon Megged’s Foiglman.2 In both these novels, which are set in Israel, the relationship of native-born Israelis to Yiddish is a crucial theme. The language serves as a key to unlocking part of the protagonists’ heritage and in the process redefines their personalities; it is Yiddish that impels and enables them to set out on a hazardous journey of self-discovery. While they are not the only relatively recent works of Hebrew fiction to incorporate Yiddish into their fabric, these novels are perhaps the most salient ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Language that was Lost on the Roads: Discovering Hebrew through
           Yiddish in Aharon Appelfeld’s Fiction
    • Abstract: <p>By Shachar Pinsker</p> One of the guiding principles of Chana Kronfeld’s work as a scholar, teacher and translator is the absolute necessity of understanding modern Hebrew literature in its multilingual contexts. This principle is clearly at work in her magnum opus on Hebrew and Yiddish modernist poetry,1 as well as in numerous articles and lectures. In one such lecture, the 2005 keynote address at the conference of the National Association of Professors of Hebrew, Kronfeld suggested that “the first Israeli phase of modern Hebrew poetry (known as the “Statehood Generation”) may have been mediated by, indeed partially modeled on…the once-flourishing international Yiddish modernism.”2 She ended the lecture claiming that such “submerged ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Translation on the Margins: Hebrew-German-Yiddish Multilingualism in
           Avraham Ben Yitzhak and Yoel Hoffmann
    • Abstract: <p>By Maya Barzilai</p> One of the activities that took place on the margins of European modernism and constituted those margins as such was translation. Translation as a whole can be viewed as a marginal pursuit in a number of senses: for one, the work of the translator, as Laurence Venuti has claimed for the cases of American and British cultures, often tends to be marginal and “invisible,” aimed at producing a “fluent” and readable text that does not call attention to itself;1 translation has also been looked upon as marginal to original literary production in a particular language, a mere means to the end of enhancing the target language and its literature. In On the Margins of Modernism, Chana Kronfeld reminds us, however, that ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • What Does It Mean to Write a Modern Jewish Sonnet' Some Challenges of
           Yiddish and Hebrew
    • Abstract: <p>By Jordan Finkin</p> To Chana Kronfeld, whose love for people and for poetry is a gift There is a remarkably extensive body of both discursive and theoretical literature on the sonnet, encompassing all aspects of its history, structure, contents, thematics, and prosody. What is equally remarkable is just how little theory exists for the modern Jewish sonnet, in Yiddish and Hebrew. This lack of a robust body of sonnet theory—either by scholars or practitioners—short of, that is, descriptions of individual poems or cycles, means that these preliminary comments must remain fairly conjectural. Two notable historical realities provided the stimulus for this essay. The first is the fact that within less than a century, perhaps some ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Purim-shpiler and the Melancholy Clown: Folk Performance between
           Tradition and Modernism in the Work of Avraham Shlonsky and Moyshe
    • Abstract: <p>By Zehavit Stern</p> The special Purim double issue of the literary journal Turim (Columns) was indeed, as promised in the previous number, sizable and delightful, offering “old time jests by renowned people to read on the joyous holiday.” Turimpurim, which came out a day before Purim, on February 28, 1934, presented light poems (pizmonim) by Nathan Alterman and Avraham Shlonsky, and jokes, caricatures, and Purim-related drawings alongside articles on subjects such as the spirit of Purim or, quite differently, the charm of actresses. In line with the purimesque topic yet quite in contrast to its cheerful atmosphere, the cover page presented a poem by Shlonsky, entitled “Mukyon ki yivke...” (When a Clown Cries...), suitably accompanied ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Milgroym, Rimon and Interwar Jewish Bilingualism
    • Abstract: <p>By Naomi Brenner</p> This article is dedicated to Chana Kronfeld, who introduced me to Hebrew and Yiddish literatures and their intersections. In 1922, a Jewish reader could have walked into several shops in Berlin’s Schöneberg neighborhood, Max N. Maisel’s bookstore on Grand Street in New York, Hasefer on D’Arblay Street in London, or Farlag Yiddish on Robert Street in Toronto and come across the striking covers of two related new magazines, the Yiddish Milgroym and the Hebrew Rimon, both of which mean “pomegranate.” In contrast to the small dense typography of Hebrew journals such as Ha-shiloach, with businesslike front covers that channeled its scholarly intentions as much as its modest budget, or the hand-drawn covers ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • On the Margins and Other Impossible Spaces
    • Abstract: <p>By Naomi Seidman</p> My friend tells an old Yiddish joke about a rabbi who comes into the synagogue during the Days of Awe, prostrates himself in front of the Holy Ark and says: “Master of the universe, forgive me for I am nothing.” A few minutes later, the chazn (cantor) walks in, prostrates himself in front of the ark of the Torah and says: “Master of the universe, forgive me for I am nothing.” After yet a few more minutes, in comes the lowly shammes (synagogue sexton), who prostrates himself in front of the ark and says: “Master of the universe, forgive me for I am nothing.” Hearing this, the rabbi sits up, pokes the chazn, and, pointing to the shammes, says: “Look who’s a nothing!” (ze nor ver s’iz a gornisht). If the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Berkeley School of Jewish Literature
    • Abstract: <p>By David Shneer, Robert Adler-Peckerar</p> It was a seminar on Yiddish and Hebrew literature early in my graduate career, sometime in the mid-1990s. Chana Kronfeld’s classes usually took place in the lovely living room or dining room of her home, really more of a classic Victorian salon, the space in which my best graduate learning happened at Berkeley. Chana’s salon was my intellectual home at Berkeley, where I met the people who would become my lifelong colleagues, teachers, and friends, and where I fell in love with reading. I would even go one step further; Chana Kronfeld taught me to read. Of course, it was my parents and kindergarten teacher who taught me to discern individual letters, put them together to make words, and to put those words ... <a href="">Read More</a>
