initially released in 2007, Modernism, Feminism, and Jewishness explores the classy and political roles played by means of Jewish characters in women's fiction among the area Wars. Focusing customarily on British modernism, it argues that girl authors enlist a multifaceted imaginative and prescient of Jewishness to aid them form fictions which are thematically bold and officially experimental. Maren Linett analyzes the meanings and motifs that Virginia Woolf, Jean Rhys, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Dorothy Richardson, and Djuna Barnes go together with Jewishness. The writers' simultaneous identity with and distancing from Jews produced complicated portrayals during which Jews serve now and then as versions for the authors' paintings, and now and then as foils opposed to which their writing is outlined. through analyzing the political and literary energy of Semitic discourse for those key girls authors, Linett fills an important hole within the account of the cultural and literary forces that formed modernism.
