David Bergelson (1884–1952) emerged as a major literary figure who wrote in Yiddish before WWI. He was one of the founders of the Kiev Kultur-Lige and his work was at the center of the Yiddish-speaking world of the time. He was well known for creating characters who often felt the painful after-effects of the past and the clumsiness of bodies stumbling through the actions of daily life as their familiar worlds crumbled around them. In this contemporary assessment of Bergelson and his fiction, Harriet Murav focuses on untimeliness, anachronism, and warped temporality as an emotional, sensory, existential, and historical background to Bergleson’s work and world. Murav grapples with the great modern theorists of time and memory, especially Henri Bergson, Sigmund Freud, and Walter Benjamin, to present Bergelson as an integral part of the philosophical and artistic experiments, political and technological changes, and cultural context of Russian and Yiddish modernism that marked his age. As a comparative and interdisciplinary study of Yiddish literature and Jewish culture, this work adds a new, ethnic dimension to understandings of the turbulent birth of modernism.

This book is the first comprehensive study of the practice of "kekawin" composition in Bali. Based on field research and a diverse range of palm leaf texts, it explores Balinese perceptions of "kekawin" composition and demonstrates the nexus between religion and the writing of these poems. Like "kekawin" from ancient Java, Balinese "kekawin" have been conceived as a mystical means of unification with divinity, as temples of language. In the first part of the book Bali is shown to be a society of religious literacy, and alphabet magic and the religious beliefs that underpin literary activity are examined. The second part explores Balinese conceptions of the practice of "kekawin" composition as literary yoga. Both the priestly identity of poets and the act of composing as a religious ritual are considered. The final section investigates the craft of composition through texts that concern prosody, poetics and orthography: the "Canda," the "Bhasaprana" and the "Swarawyanjana."

Deportations by train were critical in the Nazis' genocidal vision of the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question." Historians have estimated that between 1941 and 1944 up to three million Jews were transported to their deaths in concentration and extermination camps. In his writings on the "Final Solution," Raul Hilberg pondered the role of trains: "How can railways be regarded as anything more than physical equipment that was used, when the time came, to transport the Jews from various cities to shooting grounds and gas chambers in Eastern Europe?" This book explores the question by analyzing the victims' experiences at each stage of forced relocation: the round-ups and departures from the ghettos, the captivity in trains, and finally, the arrival at the camps. Utilizing a variety of published memoirs and unpublished testimonies, the book argues that victims experienced the train journeys as mobile chambers, comparable in importance to the more studied, fixed locations of persecution, such as ghettos and camps.

Beyond the Pale of Pity lays out the historical-sociological background of a phenomenon that has come to occupy a tropical strangle hold. This initial volume is the first of three dealing with what turned into vigilantism in South America's largest country. Nearly always with some connection to the police, modern-day death squads were invented in Brazil in the mid-1950s. Beyond the Pale of Pity aims at the lofty goal of understanding through an investigation of the antecedents of Brazilian downwardly directed elite violence, as the inculturation of that violence wound its way from the past to the present. Only with such knowledge can scholars and students seriously begin to comprehend one of the main dilemmas confronting Brazilian society.

In interwar and post-Holocaust New York, Yiddish autobiographers responded to the upheaval of modern Jewish life in ways that combined artistic innovation with commemoration for a world that is no more. Imagining Lives: Autobiographical Fiction of Yiddish Writers is the first comprehensive study of the autobiographical genre in Yiddish literature. Jan Schwarz offers portraits of seven major Yiddish writers, showing the writer's struggles to shape the multiple identities of their ruptured lives in autobiographical fiction. This analysis of Yiddish life-writing includes discussions of literary representation, self and collectivity, and memory in modern Jewish literature. Schwarz shows how Yiddish autobiographical fiction fuses novelistic elements and memoiristic truthfulness in ways that also characterize Jewish life-writing in English and Hebrew. His accessible style, biographical sketches, glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish words, and careful survey of notable texts takes readers on an incomparable journey through modern Yiddish literature.

At the heart of Gary Snyder's poetics rests the concept of -original mind- that state of mind which has been sensually, morally, and spiritually purified so that it can directly experience the universe. The powers of -original mind- are most fully displayed by the Shaman, the Bodhisattva, and the poet - figures which play major roles in "Myths and Texts" and "Mountains and Rivers Without End. Myths" explores one of the fundamental issues of our time, the destruction of nature, and sets forth a series of sophisticated steps by which humans can achieve moral and spiritual harmony with it. "Mountains and Rivers" comprises a series of experimental poems that expand upon themes adumbrated in "Myths.""
