Between German and Hebrew : The Counterlanguages of Gershom Scholem, Werner Kraft and Ludwig Strauss
about this item
This book traces the German-Hebrew language contact-zones in which Gershom Scholem, Werner Kraft and Ludwig Strauss created in Germany and in Jerusalem in the 1920s and 30s. Set in the contexts of cultural marginality, modernist literature, and linguistic dislocation, Barouch exposes the writings of Scholem, Kraft and Strauss as unique forms of counterlanguage: Hebraist lamentation, Germanist steadfastness and polyglot dialogue, respectively.
