This seminar considers the work of two of America’s most celebrated Jewish literary figures, who represent very different strands of American Jewish writing. Philip Roth’s assimilated characters seem cut off from the wellspring of Jewish identity, and even actively rebel against the tradition. Cynthia Ozick’s characters, in contrast, tend to be versed in classical Jewish sources and familiar with the rhythms of traditional Jewish life. In class, we’ll look at important selections from both their works to consider how each writer understands the place of Jewish identity in America.
