Between German and Hebrew: The Counterlanguages of Gershom by Lina Barouch

By Lina Barouch

This ebook strains the German-Hebrew touch zones during which Gershom Scholem, Werner Kraft and Ludwig Strauss lived and produced their inventive paintings in early twentieth-century Germany and later in British Mandate Palestine after their voluntary or compelled migration within the Twenties and Nineteen Thirties. Set in transferring historic contexts and literary debates – the idea of the German vernacular country, Hebraism and Jewish Revival in Weimar Germany, the trouble of language in modernist literature, and the fledgling multilingual groups in Jerusalem, the writings of Scholem, Kraft and Strauss grow to be distinct varieties of counterlanguage. the 3 chapters of the e-book are devoted to Scholem’s Hebraist lamentation, Kraft’s Germanist steadfastness and Strauss’s polyglot discussion, respectively. The exam in their correspondences, diaries, scholarship and literary oeuvres demonstrates how counteractive writing practices helped confront concrete and metaphorical crises of language to supply compelling choices to literary silence, amnesia or paralysis that have been triggered via cultural marginality and dislocation.
