"Singer is dealing here with one of the great themes of the 19th-century European novel, a theme especially exciting to Yiddish readers of, say, 40 or 50 years ago -- the rise of capitalism in its "heroic" or adventurous phase and the accompanying entry of the Jews onto the stage of historical action, whether through the accumulation of capital which obsesses Max Ashkenazi or through the gathering of rebellion which forms the goal of his socialist antagonists. If the objectives of these 2 contending forces are at polar opposites, Singer brilliantly shows how their outpouring of energy, their hunters to leave a mark move along parallel lines from. From a traditional Jewish point of view, both styles of conduct must seem equally disturbing and ominous." Page XIII. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
