This volume is comprised of 14 contributions, which are revised and expanded versions of lectures held at an international conference on Stefan Zweig that took place in Israel in 2004.

These include: Zweig's conception of the daemonic, Zweig and Christianity, the discourse of love in his writings, Zweig as an Austrian eulogist, his understandi

Melancholy pride : nation, race, and gender in the German literature of cultural Zionism by Mark H Gelber( )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and German and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focuses on the emergence of a modern Jewish national literature and culture within the parameters of Zionism in Vienna and Berlin at the turn of the last century. Prominent figures associated with early modern Zionism, including Theodor Herzl, Max Nordau, and Martin Buber, were also writers and literary or cultural icons within the Central European, Germanic-Austrian cultural environment of the fin-de-siècle. More important, Cultural Zionism promoted young Jewish literary and artistic talent as part of its ideology of a modern Jewish Renaissance. A corpus of German-language Jewish-national poetry and literature, as well as mechanisms for its dissemination and reception, developed rapidly. Most of this literary and cultural production has been forgotten or suppressed. Productive, if often unlikely, partnerships between Jewish national poets and artists and Central European cultural figures and movements were forged in this context. Facets of Central European cultural life, which were somewhat oppositional to traditional Jewish culture were received, absorbed, or transformed within Cultural Zionism. For example, the relationship of German racialist thought and German-nationalist fraternity life to early Jewish-national expression is a largely unknown chapter of early Jewish-national cultural history. The same can be said for the impact of feminist, counter-culture, and bohemian circles in Berlin on Cultural Zionist personalities and their work
Integration und Ausgrenzung : Studien zur deutsch-jüdischen Literatur- und Kulturgeschichte von der Frühen Neuzeit bis zur Gegenwart ; Festschrift für Hans Otto Horch zum 65. Geburtstag by Daniel Jütte( )

10 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collected volume is dedicated to Prof Hans Otto Horch on the occasion of his 65th birthday. Prof. Horch has done much to enrich the academic processing of the history of German-Jewish literature and culture. The wide range of his interests is reflected in these papers by internationally-renowned Germanists, historians and cultural researchers, who are concerned with Jewish identity against the background of Jewish-Christian relations in the German-speaking world from the Early Modern Age up to the present day
Jewish Reception of Heinrich Heine by Mark H Gelber( )

5 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the lectures, many substantially expanded and revised, which were delivered at an international conference held at Ben-Gurion University in Beersheva in 1990. By utilizing the methodological guidelines and insights of reception aesthetics, a range of Jewish readings of Heine's works and his complex literary personality are analyzed. Considerations of his impact on major figures, like Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx, Theodor Herzl, Max Nordau, Karl Kraus, Else Lasker-Schüler, Lion Feuchtwanger, and Max Brod comprise the major part of the book. In addition, there are readings of Heine by minor or neglected Jewish writers and poets, including, for example, Aron Bernstein and Fritz Heymann, and by Jewish writers in Hebrew and Yiddish literature, as well as by Jewish readers within other national readerships, for example, the American and Croatian. In the process of this analysis, the notion of Jewish reception itself is naturally subjected to critical scrutiny
Stefan Zweig and world literature : twenty-first century perspectives by Birger Vanwesenbeeck( )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twenty-first century has seen a renewed surge of cultural and critical interest in the works of the Austrian-Jewish author Stefan Zweig (1881-1942), who was among the most-read and -acclaimed authors worldwide in the 1920s and 1930s but after 1945 fell into critical disfavor and relative obscurity. The resurgence in interest in Zweig and his works is attested to by, among other things, new English translations and editions of his works; a Brazilian motion picture and a best-selling French novel about his final days; and a renewed debate surrounding the literary quality of his work in the London Review of Books. This global return to Zweig calls for a critical reassessment of his legacy and works, which the current collection of essays provides by approaching them from a global perspective as opposed to the narrow European focus through which they have been traditionally approached. Together, the introduction and twelve essays engage the totality of Zweig's published and unpublished works from his drama and his fiction to his letters and his biographies, and from his literary and art criticism to his autobiography
Kafka by Mark H Gelber( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Likewise, his writings are considered within the specific framework of Jewish nationalism and Zionism
Von Franzos zu Canetti : jüdische autoren aus Österreich : neue Studien( Book )

Confrontations, accommodations : German-Jewish literary and cultural relations from Heine to Wassermann( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in German and English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, edited in honour of Professor Jeffrey L. Sammons of Yale University on the occasion of his retirement, presents a series of incisive essays on German-Jewish literary and cultural history from the Enlightenment until the rise of Nazism. Key Jewish figures, including Heinrich Heine, Ludwig Börne, Rahel Varnhagen, Berthold Auerbach, Arthur Schnitzler, Franz Kafka, and Jacob Wassermann, are considered in excitingly new scholarly frameworks. Also German writers and personalities, like G.E. Lessing, Goethe, Grillparzer, Jean Paul, Julius Langbehn, Houston Stewart Chamberlain and many more, are included in diverse discussions of German-Jewish literary and cultural history of this period
Kafka after Kafka : dialogic engagement with his works from the Holocaust to postmodernism by Iris Bruce( Book )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The topic of "Kafka after Kafka" is a fascinating one: the engagement of artists, philosophers, and critics in dialogical exchange with Kafka's works. The present collection of new essays highlights the engagement of lesser known artists and commentators with Kafka, and represents those who are well known, such as Arendt, Blanchot, Nabokov, and Coetzee, from new perspectives. The eleven essays contained here represent the most recent scholarly engagements with this topic. An essay on major trends in current Kafka criticism provides background for several essays on novelists, philosophers, and critics whose relationship to Kafka is not very well known. A section devoted to Kafka from an Israeli perspective includes artists not commonly known in the US or Europe (Ya'acov Shteinberg, Hezi Leskly, Sayed Kashua), as well as an essay on the recent trial in Israel regarding the fate of Kafka's literary legacy. A final section addresses important contemporary approaches to Kafka in film studies, animal studies, the graphic novel, and in postmodern culture and counterculture. Contributors: Iris Bruce, Stanley Corngold, Amir Engel, Mark H. Gelber, Sander L. Gilman, Caroline Jessen, Tali Latowicki, Michael G. Levine, Ido Lewit, Vivian Liska, Alana Sobelman"--

Stefan Zweig, Judentum und Zionismus by Mark H Gelber( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieser Band zeigt das komplexe und relativ intensive Verhältnis Stefan Zweigs zum Judentum und zum Zionismus vom Beginn seiner Karriere an. Einige seiner wichtigsten Schriften und auch Teile von bedeutenden Briefwechseln können partiell als Auseinandersetzungen mit Stellungnahmen zu Judentum und Zionismus verstanden werden. Der Band versucht zu zeigen, dass die jüdischen und zionistischen Aspekte seiner Karriere und Schriften ihren gerechtfertigten Platz in der Gesamtinterpretation seines Schaffens haben. Zweigs jüdische Sensibilität kommt in mehreren seiner Werke klar zum Ausdruck, genauso wie in seinen Briefen. Jüdische Rezeptionen von Zweigs Schriften helfen, verschiedene Deutungsoptionen für seine Texte anzuwenden und sie in einem bestimmten spezifisch jüdischen Rahmen zu verstehen
Stefan Zweig : Jüdische Relationen : Studien zu Werk und Biographie( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discussion of Zweig's Jewish themes and issues reveals varying degrees of intensity and leaves many traces behind. His biography and his literary work are not only connected in a variety of ways with the Jewish milieus of Vienna: Zweig also tries to find it's aesthetic position in dialogue with other Jewish artists and intellectuals in other European cities. In Zweig's literary work we recognize a commute between proximity and distance from Judaism. Jewish figures, themes and motifs play an important role here. In Germanic research, however, the distance branch to Judaism has been emphasized. This volume Stefan Zweig - Jüdische Relationen, which has emerged from an international Stefan Zweig Conference organized in Salzburg in November 2015, brings together a selection of studies on Zweig's confrontation with Judaism. At the center of the systematic and critical discussion of this subject are biographical investigations, such as the illumination of the Jewish aspect in Zweig's friendships to different personalities, and also work studies, such as Jeremiah, Schachnovelle or Die Welt von Gestern, as well as the history of his studies with Yiddish literature. --back cover
