Editorial Reviews

Review

"Henry has done a service in re-kindling the conversation regarding this iconoclast by constructing a new image of Gordin based on exhaustive archival work. . . . She should be commended for breaking new ground on such a significant figure, and, hopefully, providing access for future work from a range of disciplines."—Max Shulman, Studies in American Jewish Literature, Fall 2012

"Well researched and artfully argued, Henry's Rewriting Russia is a long-overdue book on this major figure that establishes how Jacob Gordin created a rich and important interplay between Yiddish and Russian forms that elevated the literary status of both."—Leah Garrett, The Russian Review, June 2012

"This new and elegantly written literary history . . . provides a new model for literary history by expertly weaving together previously unexamined Tsarist-era archival records with insightful literary analysis of Gordon's major works."—Barry Trachtenberg, H-Net Reviews, March 2012

Review

"Lucid and engaging this study makes an important scholarly contribution to the fields of Yiddish culture, American Jewish history, and Russian Jewish history."—Tony Michels, author of A Fire in Their Hearts: Yiddish Socialists in New York

"A mold-breaking work of literary history as well as a brilliant analysis of literary text."—Jeremy Dauber, author of In the Demon's Bedroom: Yiddish Literature and the Early Modern
