By Naomi Brenner
At the start of the 20 th century, bold younger writers flocked from
Jewish cities and villages to cultural facilities like Warsaw, Odessa, and Vilna
to search their fortunes. those writers, normally trained in either Hebrew and
Yiddish, amassed in literary salons and cafés to learn, declaim, talk about, and
ponder the current and way forward for Jewish tradition. even if, within the years before
and after global struggle I, writers and readers more and more immigrated to Western
Europe, the Americas, and Palestine, remodeling the multilingualism that had
defined Jewish literary tradition in jap Europe. through 1950, Hebrew was once ensconced
as the language and literature of the younger kingdom of Israel, and Yiddish
was scattered all through postwar Jewish groups in Europe and North and
Lingering Bilingualism examines those early twentieth-century transformations
of Jewish existence and tradition in the course of the lens of recent Hebrew–Yiddish
bilingualism. Exploring a chain of encounters among Hebrew and Yiddish
writers and texts, Brenner demonstrates how glossy Hebrew and Yiddish
literatures shifted from a longtime bilingualism to a dynamic translingualism
in reaction to radical alterations in Jewish ideology, geography, and culture.
She analyzes how those literatures and their writers, translators, and critics
intersected in areas like Warsaw, Berlin, Tel Aviv, and New York—and
imagined new paradigms for cultural creation in Jewish languages. Her
aim is neither to idealize the Hebrew–Yiddish bilingualism that after defined
East ecu Jewish tradition nor to recount the "language battle" that challenged
it. fairly, Lingering Bilingualism argues that persevered Hebrew–
Yiddish literary touch has been serious to the advance of every literature,
cultivating linguistic and literary experimentation and innovation.
