Literature as a Medium for Memory: The Universe of Sholem Asch's Novels (Polish Studies - Transdisciplinary Perspectives #5) (Hardcover)

The book focuses on the presentation of basic figures of memory that are present in the twenty-six novels by the Yiddish writer Sholem Asch. This study shows how memory is crystallized in the Jewish experience of nature and in the reality shaped by people, as well as in the reception of the biblical and historical events to which the author refers.
