Civil Antisemitism, Modernism, and British Culture, 1902-1939 by Lara Trubowitz

Civil Antisemitism, Modernism, and British Culture, 1902-1939


Civil Antisemitism, Modernism, and British Culture, 1902-1939 by Lara Trubowitz

This book addresses the development of 'civil' anti-Semitism in twentieth-century Britain, a crucial and often critically neglected strand of anti-Jewish rhetoric that, prior to 1934, was essential to the legitimization of proto-fascist political and literary discourses, as well as stylistic practices within literary modernism.


[Civil Antisemitism, Modernism, and British Culture, 1902-1939] contains some crucial insights into our study of antisemitism and modernism. Civil Antisemitism moves us away from the discussion of Jewish stereotype to a method that reveals a hidden and complicated rhetoric regarding Jews, and it opens up a new realm of investigation for those interested in Woolf and Jews. It is a worthy book because its methodology serves as a model for further investigations into the impact of Jews and Jewishness on Woolf and her modernist contemporaries. - Woolf Studies Annual
