By Ari Ofengenden

The poet Abraham Shlonsky (1900–1973) could 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 stories of radical political displacement, exile and alienation by using an exact, chiseled but playfully enigmatic variety. Writing on immigrants, refugees and concrete outcasts following the stressful occasions of the 1st global conflict and the Civil battle 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 ebook 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 varieties of Symbolism and Expressionism. The publication is crucial for realizing smooth Hebrew and Jewish tradition, and extra regularly as an exemplar of trendy extra normal hybridizations of culture and modernity.
