eBook Agnon and Germany

   Agnon and Germany
by Hans-Jürgen הנס-יורגן Becker בקר /Bar Ilan University Press

This book includes studies and research on Agnon`s work in Germany between the years 1913 and 1924, during which time his art earned its classic status. The studies deal also with the influence of the German world and its culture on his entire work. The development of the work of S.Y. Agnon (1887-1970), the greatest of Jewish storytellers in the Hebrew language, reached a definitive and lasting peak that crystallized in the years that Agnon lived in Germany (1912-1924). The nature of this consolidation is presented to the reader in the present work, Agnon and Germany, the product of research conducted by two groups of scholars, the German group headed by Hans-Jürgen Becker and the Israeli group headed by Hillel Weiss. The German period extends beyond the physical presence of Agnon in Germany and also includes the period primarily after he went back to the land of Israel in 1924, and, in a way, until his death in 1970. The German world, alongside the Jewish world that was the ma

   Borrowed Motifs in Hebrew Literature-מוטיבים שאולים בספרות ישראל
by Yehuda Ratzaby יהודה רצהבי /Bar Ilan University Press

The significant influence of Arabic culture on medieval Jewish culture is evident in a wide variety of areas: linguistics, biblical exegesis, philosophy, science, religious rituals, and of course, poetry. This influence is particularly noticeable in the secular poetry of Spain beginning in the 10th century, and also in the liturgical poetry, which developed a unique style very different from the piyyut of Eretz Israel. The Arabic influence is reflected in many aspects: structure, meter and rhyme; genre and content; literary taste; aesthetic and moral values; and images and idioms used by the poets. A strong influence can also be found in anthologies of proverbs and popular sayings

   RED POEM BLUE POEM שיר אדום שיר כחול
by אבידב ליפסקר /Bar Ilan University Press

This book sets out to redefine Ur Zvi Grinberg`s writings on the background of the cultural framework in which they flourished and to return them to the place from which they were extracted and made timeless. The book reconstructs the beginnings of Grinberg`s poetry before it was canonized into classic volumes, the uniformity of which hides the differences inherent in his works. The essays analyse these differences and examine the moment of creation of each work, showing how it reflects the subject-author, deliberating and deciding, regretting and self-reflecting. ספר זה מבקש להציב את כתבי אורי צבי גרינברג מחדש על גבי המצע התרבותי שעליו

eBook Scripturally Enslaved

   Scripturally Enslaved
by Shaindy Rudoff /Bar Ilan University Press

investigates the ways in which the literature of the American Renaissance negotiates the ethical, theological, political, and aesthetic implications of the Bible's entanglement in the mid-nineteenth-century debates over slavery. In chapters on both nonfiction (sermons, ethnographies, and political speeches) and fiction (Edgar Allan Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, Frederick Douglass's Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, and America Slave, and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, among others), Scripturally Enslaved explores the ways in which antebellum writers represent and respond to the use of biblical materials in the politics of race. By examining the intersections of the discourses of religion and race, the book complicates the study of both religious experience and cultural engagement in the texts of the American Renaissance and extends the argument for the centrality of the slavery experience in all American texts of the period. investigates th
