Overview

Jews in Russian Literature after the October Revolution: Writers and Artists between Hope and Apostasy by Anthony Professor Cross, Efraim Sicher

This study shows how four famous Jews writing in Russian in the early Soviet period attempted to resolve the conflict between their cultural identity and their place in Revolutionary Russia. Babel, Mandelstam, Pasternak and Ehrenburg struggled to form creative selves out of the contradictions of origins, outlook and social or ideological pressures. Comparison of literary texts and the visual arts reveals unexpected correspondences in the response to political and cultural change.Sicher provides a fascinating view of intercultural and intertextual connections and contrasts.
