Lars Andeming, perhaps overly intellectual and certainly eccentric, is the Monday book reviewer for a Stockholm daily. He is also the self-proclaimed son of Bruno Schulz, a Polish writer who was executed by the Nazis before his last novel, The Messiah, could be published. When a manuscript of The Messiah mysteriously appears in Stockholm, in the possession of Schulz's 'daughter', Lars's circumscribed world of paper, apartment, and favorite bookstore turns upside down, catapulting him into a whirlwind of dream, magic, and illusion.

Since the 1970s, Cynthia Ozick's stories, novels, and essays have gradually earned high critical acclaim. Victor Strandberg's Greek Mind/Jewish Soul is a comprehensive study of this exceptionally gifted author, correlating her creative art and her intellectual development. Strandberg devotes considerable attention to Ozick's struggle to maintain her Jewish religion and culture within a society saturated with Christian and secular values. By examining the influence of Western philosophical and literary traditions on Ozick and her particular social circumstances, Strandberg is able to ask larger questions about the merit of Ozick's work and its place within American literature. Strandberg begins by chronicling the cultural dilemmas of Ozick's early life. The daughter of struggling immigrant parents, Ozick sometimes endured anti-Semitic ostracism from classmates in the New York public schools. But even as she deeply immersed herself in her Judaic heritage, avidly learning Hebrew and studying Jewish history, she found the Gentile heritage irresistible, beginning with fairy tales in childhood and graduating to George Eliot, Edith Wharton, and Henry James. Her studies in Latin likewise awakened a love for classical literature that impinged powerfully upon her books, particularly Trust and The Pagan Rabbi. By drawing on a range of sources, including his own ten-year correspondence with Ozick, Strandberg illuminates Ozick's thinking on volatile issues that troubled her during her formative years, including feminism, the Holocaust, and Jewish cultural survival. Strandberg then offers a close reading of her books and poems in chapters on Trust, The Pagan Rabbi, Bloodshed, and Levitation and presents an astute analysis of her later novels, The Cannibal Galaxy, The Messiah of Stockholm, and The Shawl. After reviewing all the critical material written to date on Ozick, Strandberg concludes by rendering his own assessment of Ozick's literary achievement. He considers how "Jewish" her work is, how "American" it is, and finally, how major her seat is at the table of the canonized.

This is a critical analysis of Pierre Boulle, author of Planet of the Apes (1963) and Bridge over the River Kwai (1952). Boulle is regarded by the author of this text as a modern-day disciple of the French moralists of the 17th and 18th centuries. She sees his novels as philosophical treatises, not as film scripts, although she notes that each Hollywoodization of a Boulle novel has effectively removed the philosophical matter.

"Superb novelists deserve first-rate literary analysis. Cynthia Ozick has found such critics... most recently in Elaine Kauvar, whose present work is simultaneously a profound contribution to Ozick interpretation and an astonishingly readable account of the novelist's ideas and artistic manner.... Highly recommended."Â -- Choice "... comprehensive and beautifully written... "Â -- Studies in the Novel "... an indispensible work of scholarship.... Cynthia Ozick's Fiction, in sum, demonstrates an astute and comprehensive grasp of both Ozick's writings and the vast store of writings that influence her... a definitive and indispensible study... "Â -- American Literature "... a rare combination of painstaking scholarship with dazzling critical intelligence and inventiveness." -- Edward Alexander "... Elaine Kauvar's comprehensive and beautifully written study of Cynthia Ozick's fiction should be welcomed as a heroic counter-cultural manifesto, both in what she says and in the elegance with which she says it." -- Congress Monthly Looking beyond the stereotype of Ozick's work as American-Jewish literature, Kauvar illuminates the intricacies of Ozick's texts and explores the dynamics of her creativity. Kauvar provides readings of all of Ozick's fiction from her first published novel, Trust, through The Messiah of Stockholm.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English - History of Literature, Eras, grade: keine, University of Freiburg (Amerikanistik), language: English, abstract: Introduction My work will try to deal with three representatives of Jewish American Fiction, Bernard Malamud, Philip Roth and Cynthia Ozick. The common thread among such authors is the fact that all three novels deal with refugees or their descendants and are all based in Europe, struggling with their Jewishness and living it out in various forms, the Yiddish elements in them and maybe also the implicit criticism or appraisal of each author towards the others (e.g. as a striking example for all "The Messiah of Stockholm" itself is dedicated to Philip Roth). Each of the European countries that constitute the geographical as well as the historical background of the novels offer a different perspective and/or attitude towards Judaism and experience it in a different manner. The first novel I will examine in my work will be The Fixer by Bernard Malamud, a novel which recreates the story of Mendel Beilis, an ordinary man living in Czarist Russia (1911), who suddenly finds himself accused of the murder of a young Russian boy and so of a ritual murder, according to the age-old lie that Jews kill Christians to use their blood for Passover matzoth 1 (or 2, the unleavened bread the Jews ate when fleeing from Egypt in the thirteenth century B.C. since in their perilous flight they could not wait long enough to wait for the dough to rise 3) . Throughout his work Malamud delivers a portrait of anti-Semitism, imprisonment, degradation, torture, and human integrity. At the same time The Fixer works as a resemblance of the Holocaust, which Malamud otherwise deals with only indirectly. 4 Also Ozick in her work The Messiah of Stockholm imagines that the manuscript of Bruno Schulz, a Polish Jew gunned down by the SS in 1942, has resurfaced: an obsessive Swedish critic believing himself Schulz's son announce

Traditions, Voices, and Dreams offers the interested reader ample testimony that the American Novel is alive, well, and steadily breaking new ground. These collected essays also provide a new text for Contemporary American Novel classes. Teachers and students should find useful and stimulating a book that puts into perspective such contemporary masters as John Barth, Saul Bellow, E. L. Doctorow, Norman Mailer, Joyce Carol Oates, Flannery O'Connor, Cynthia Ozick, Walker Percy, Thomas Pynchon, Philip Roth, William Styron, John Updike, and Kurt Vonnegut and the strikingly sectarian John Kennedy Toole. Also discussed are such recent and important ethnic and women writers as Maya Angelou, Jamaica Kincaid, Maxine Hong Kingston, Marilyn Robinson, Elizabeth Dewberry Vaughan, and Alice Walker. Wishing to be as inclusive and varied as possible, editors Melvin J. Friedman and Ben Siegel invited fourteen outstanding critic/scholars of contemporary American fiction to place in literary and cultural perspective their novelists and themes of choice. The resulting volume's one true predecessor would be Joseph J. Waldmeir's Recent American Fiction: Some Critical Views (1963), in which this volume's two editors had essays, but even that notable compilation lacked the range of major, ethnic, or women writers and the variety of critical methods represented here. Michael Gillespie, James West, Ben Siegel, Mark Krupnick, and Clayton Koelb, for example, discuss some of the ways American novelists have integrated into their fiction elements from the Southern, Jewish, and European cultural and literary traditions. Then James Mellard, Jerome Klinkowitz, Susan Brienza, Linda Wagner-Martin, and Suzette Henke analyze the differing "voices and languages" shaping the social and human "realities" depicted in the writings of some major American literary figures. Finally, James Nagel, Gloria Cronin, Elaine Safer, and Thomas Schaub confront the thematic "hopes, dreams, and desperation" central to a good deal of this country's fiction today. As the century draws to a close then, the allegedly vanishing American novel does not appear to lack creative or daringly experimental literary practitioners - as this volume abundantly shows.
