Middlebrow Literature and the Making of German-Jewish Identity
Historians have had a much easier time of documenting German Jews' consumption of German high culture than recognizing the significance of the newspapers, periodicals, and book series that German-Jewish print media published from the 1830s on, according to Hess (Germanic languages and literatures/Jewish studies, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill). While such middlebrow literature lacked the prestige of Goethe and Schiller and is largely forgotten today, it represented the emergence of a solid literary tradition in its own right that influenced Jewish- German middle-class identity and contemporary Jewish voices. He traces the history and role of such belles lettres by genre, e. g, the Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums (Universal Jewish Newspaper), historical fiction, and romance. The book includes several art illustrations. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
