In this new collection of political satires by Nobel laureate S.Y. Agnon we witness the satirist sharpening his pen like a carving knife, revealing his opinions from behind the mask of his art. Treating themes and events in the history of early twentieth-century Zionism, these stories continue to fascinate contemporary readers, questioning the degree to which a gap remains between aspiration and implementation in Jewish life and civic society in the modern State of Israel.

“As a result of the historic catastrophe in which Titus of Rome destroyed Jerusalem and Israel was exiled from its land, I was born in one of the cities of the Exile,” S. Y. Agnon declared at the 1966 Nobel Prize ceremony. “But always I regarded myself as one who was born in Jerusalem.” Agnon’s act of literary imagination fueled his creative endeavor and is explored in these pages. Jerusalem and the Holy Land (to say nothing of the later State of Israel) are often two-faced in Agnon’s Hebrew writing. Depending on which side of the lens one views Eretz Yisrael through, the vision of what can be achieved there appears clearer or more distorted. These themes wove themselves into the presentations at an international conference convened in 2016 by the Yeshiva University Center for Israel Studies in New York City, in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of Agnon’s Nobel Prize. The essays from that conference, collected here, explore Zionism’s aspirations and shortcomings and the yearning for the Land from afar from S. Y. Agnon’s Galician hometown, which served as a symbol of Jewish longing worldwide. Contributing authors: Shulamith Z. Berger, Shalom Carmy, Zafrira Cohen Lidovsky, Steven Gine, Hillel Halkin, Avraham Holtz, Alan Mintz, Jeffrey Saks, Moshe Simkovich, Laura Wiseman, and Wendy Zierler

Literary satire assumes three main forms: monologue, parody, and narrative (some fictional, some dramatic). This book by Gilbert Highet is a study of these forms, their meaning, their variation, their powers. Its scope is the range of satirical literature—from ancient Greece to modern America, from Aristophanes to Ionesco, from the parodists of Homer to the parodists of Eisenhower. It shows how satire originated in Greece and Rome, what its initial purposes and methods were, and how it revived in the Renaissance, to continue into our own era. Contents: Preface. I. Introduction. II. Diatribe. III. Parody. IV. The Distorting Mirror. V. Conclusion. Notes. Brief Bibliography. Index. Originally published in 1962. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Very little attention has hitherto been paid by authors generally to those works forming part of Hebrew literature, in which much of delightful satire is predominant. The object of this volume, therefore, is to make the reader familiar with the contents of several of these writings which may prove interesting to him.

The recent wedding was the third in the family; the first after a five years' respite. It ensued upon an attachment that had grown up with the young people, so that they had been entirely one with each other; and there had been little of formal demand either of the maiden's affection or her father's consent; but both had been implied from the first. The bridegroom was barely of age, the bride not seventeen, and Dr. May had owned it was very shocking, and told Richard to say nothing about it! Hector had coaxed and pleaded, pathetically talked of his great empty house at Maplewood, and declared that till he might take Blanche away, he would not leave Stoneborough; he would bring down all sorts of gossip on his courtship, he would worry Ethel, and take care she finished nobody's education. What did Blanche want with more education? She knew enough for him. Couldn't Ethel be satisfied with Aubrey and Gertrude? or he dared say she might have Mary too, if she was insatiable. If Dr. May was so unnatural as to forbid him to hang about the house, why, he would take rooms at the Swan. In fact, as Dr. May observed, he treated him to a modern red-haired Scotch version of 'Make me a willow cabin at your gate;' and as he heartily loved Hector and entirely trusted him, and Blanche's pretty head was a wise and prudent one, what was the use of keeping the poor lad unsettled? So Mrs. Rivers, the eldest sister and the member's wife, had come to arrange matters and help Ethel, and a very brilliant wedding it had been.

"Long recognized as a brilliant woman of letters, a pioneering feminist, and a member of the Transcendentalist inner circle, Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) also played a significant, if less noted, role in the history of American journalism. From 1844 to 1846, she was the literary editor for Horace Greeley's New York Tribune, to which she contributed not just book reviews but a wide range of articles on New York City social conditions." "In this book, Catherine C. Mitchell combines a substantial biographical essay with a generous selection of Fuller's columns on topics such as prison and asylum reform, abolitionism, and woman's rights. Mitchell's essay puts special emphasis on the Tribune of the 1840s - its staff, its readership, the nature and impact of its news coverage and editorial viewpoint, its place in the competitive world of New York journalism - and so provides an invaluable context for understanding Fuller's duties at the newspaper. The selections from Fuller's Tribune writings include much material that has not been previously reprinted or that has not appeared in other twentieth-century collections of Fuller's work." "As Mitchell observes, the longtime neglect of Fuller's place in journalism history is attributable in part to Horace Greeley's offhanded remark that Fuller failed to work diligently. By mining a new trove of primary sources, Mitchell demonstrates convincingly that Fuller was no dilettante playing at the intellectual game of reviewing literature; rather, she made a major contribution in terms of both the quality and volume of her work. Moreover, Mitchell shows that, whatever Greeley may have said on some occasions, the editor in fact valued her highly and gave her equal treatment with the men on his staff. Margaret Fuller's New York Journalism thus adds an important new dimension to our appreciation of this remarkable nineteenth-century woman."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Deriving its title from Shakespeare's line in Henry IV, 'Away, you whoreson upright rabbit, away!', Jim Allen's selected poems are grouped under the following headings: Distant Lands, A Bestiary, The Breaking of Seals, Meditations, Lines of Resistance, Memories, A Company of Friends, Relationships, Comic Cuts, Tongues of Fire and Progression. As Jim Allen points out, poets are not saints - and many of these poems are pithy in the extreme. Professor Bruce Johnson writes in his 'Introduction': 'In matters of social justice he [Allen] has Blake's capacity for savage jabs of outrage, and I conclude that, like Swift, he can hate humankind but dearly love people. . . . Like his prose, these poems work most intensely for me when they are draped over the material world in which memory and emotion are invested.' The former Professor of English at the University of New South Wales concludes that some of Jim Allen's poetry is as fine as anything he has ever read. This is no slim volume, of verse, introduced by the colour-illustrated poem, Midnight Meditation, it contains 141 poems together with indexes of titles and first lines. Ranging between the expression of deep disgust to intense love, each poem makes its point without an excess of words.

C.S. Lewis is best known as the creator of the fanciful world of Narnia and writer of literary criticism and Christian apologetics. This book examines Lewis's early writings, under the pseudonym Clive Hamilton, analyzing the influence of his formative poetic aspirations upon his later prose. By looking at early diaries and letters, and the inclusion of four of Lewis's previously unpublished narrative poems and eleven previously unpublished short poems, this text explains the man through his writing.
