4.0 von 5 Sternen Hebrew Modernism 18. Mai 2007
Von Eric Maroney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It is a pity that not more of Joseph Chaim Brenner's works are translated into English (there is this work, Out of the Depths, and a novel, Breakdown and Bereavement, and some short stories in various anthologies). For not only is Brenner an important figure in Hebrew literature, he is also a modernist of high caliber, capable of being compared to Joyce or Proust. Quite simply, Brenner inhabited a world in transition, in a language which was being revived and enriched by the modern scene. Out of the Depths shows the level of commitment which Brenner had to the cause of literary modernism. This novella is a pastiche of styles; the narrative is broken apart and put back together again. There are journal entries and first person narration and third person perspective. The characters have the hypersensitivity we would expect in early modernists. Every thought, idea, or fleeting feeling is on the table top of examination. Nothing is taken for granted any more since every idea is open to new interpretation. This gives this work an edgy, exhausted feel, as if the entire world was about to implode. An old world is dead but a new world has not yet fully arisen to replace it.
3.0 von 5 Sternen More than Historically Significant 12. Mai 2000
Von Piotr Szymczak - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Although its title alludes to a psalm of lamentation, this book (first published in 1908-09) is a secular product. Set in early 20th century London, it has all the familiar motifs of "engaged" Jewish writing: starving workers exploited by corpulent capitalists, former revolutionaries in search of an identity, failed strikes--the classic pained world of Jewish emmigration.
Brenner's novel excels, however, similar creations (e.g. Leivick's "Shop") on a number of counts: it was fortunate to find a top-class tranlator (Webber Prize 1989), and in itself it employs an interesting variety of literary techniques (journal, stream of consciousness, a certain drama-like quality when the narrator disappears for long spells, and some powerful albeit feverish storytelling when he checks back in). The novel goes beyond the usual socio-economic agit-prop of the time: Brenner, something of a celebrity in the Hebrew literature of the day, is more focused on ethical issues, with his compelling insistence on heroic responsibility for one's actions and compassion for others.
With its decent plot-weaving and some good comical sketches, this is a thoroughly readable book.
