The poet Abraham Shlonsky (1900–1973) should be considered as the most architect of Jewish Modernism and Hebrew secular tradition. In his the most important contribution, Ari Ofengenden disentangles Shlonsky’s paintings from Zionist readings and indicates how his poetics redeem studies of radical political displacement, exile and alienation by utilizing an exact, chiseled but playfully enigmatic kind. Writing on immigrants, refugees and concrete outcasts following the aggravating occasions of the 1st international struggle and the Civil conflict in Russia, his poetry constitutes a fusion of Modernist ecu poetry with biblical and rabbinic resources with the impacts of Georg Trakl and Rimbaud.

The e-book is quintessential for figuring out glossy Hebrew and Jewish tradition, and extra usually as an exemplar of latest extra ordinary hybridizations of culture and modernity.
