The poet Abraham Shlonsky (1900–1973) will 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 reviews of radical political displacement, exile and alienation by using an exact, chiseled but playfully enigmatic kind. Writing on immigrants, refugees and concrete outcasts following the tense occasions of the 1st international warfare and the Civil struggle in Russia, his poetry constitutes a fusion of Modernist eu 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 lively player within the eu forms of Symbolism and Expressionism. The e-book is necessary for knowing smooth Hebrew and Jewish tradition, and extra as a rule as an exemplar of modern-day extra generic hybridizations of culture and modernity.
