By Ari Ofengenden
The poet Abraham Shlonsky (1900–1973) may be considered as the most architect of Jewish Modernism and Hebrew secular tradition. In his an 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 using an exact, chiseled but playfully enigmatic type. Writing on immigrants, refugees and concrete outcasts following the nerve-racking occasions of the 1st global conflict and the Civil warfare in Russia, his poetry constitutes a fusion of Modernist eu poetry with biblical and rabbinic resources with the affects of Georg Trakl and Rimbaud. The booklet situates Shlonsky’s poetry within the context of his “rebellion” opposed to the romantic poetry of C.N. Bialik and as an energetic player within the ecu forms of Symbolism and Expressionism. The e-book is quintessential for knowing sleek Hebrew and Jewish tradition, and extra normally as an exemplar of latest extra well-known hybridizations of culture and modernity.
