Vienna Is Different : Jewish Writers in Austria from the Fin-de-SiAcle to the Present Hardback

Part of the Austrian and Habsburg Studies series

Description

Assessing the impact of fin-de-siecle Jewish culture on subsequent developments in literature and culture, this book is the first to consider the historical trajectory of Austrian-Jewish writing across the 20th century.

It examines how Vienna, the city that stood at the center of Jewish life in the Austrian Empire and later the Austrian nation, assumed a special significance in the imaginations of Jewish writers as a space and an idea.

The author focuses on the special relationship between Austrian-Jewish writers and the city to reveal a century-long pattern of living in tension with the city, experiencing simultaneously acceptance and exclusion, feeling unheimlich heimischA" (eerily at home) in Vienna.
