Abstract

Abstract:

This short article introduces this special issue of Prooftexts, The Beginnings of Modern Jewish Literature in Europe. It is divided into two parts. The first part historicizes and analyzes the debate about when modern Jewish Literature began, focusing on the major literary historiographies of the twentieth century (Klausner, Lachower, Slouschz, Weinreich, and Zinberg). The second connects this debate to the scholarship of the contributors to this volume and provides a short summary of the content of their articles.
