The Writer as Exile:
Israel Joshua Singer
By Estelle Gershgoren Novak and Maximillian E. Novak
AMS Studies in Modern Literature, No. 34
Israel Joshua Singer was a household name in the 1920s and 1930s among readers of modern literature. Among novelists writing in Yiddish, he was justly regarded as the premier artist of his time. And while his fame may have been eclipsed by that of his brother, I.B. Singer, Israel Joshua Singer is nonetheless considered one of the significant novelists of the 20th century. In translation, his fiction continues to have worldwide circulation and garner acclaim. The Writer as Exile approaches Singer’s work through the political turmoil of his age, giving critical voice to the inner sense of exile that Singer both experienced and explored while fashioning the sufferings of his Jewish characters, their anxieties and alienation.
