This e-book strains the German-Hebrew touch zones during which Gershom Scholem, Werner Kraft and Ludwig Strauss lived and produced their inventive paintings in early twentieth-century Germany and later in British Mandate Palestine after their voluntary or compelled migration within the Nineteen Twenties and Thirties. Set in moving ancient contexts and literary debates – the concept of the German vernacular state, Hebraism and Jewish Revival in Weimar Germany, the hindrance of language in modernist literature, and the fledgling multilingual groups in Jerusalem, the writings of Scholem, Kraft and Strauss become specified different types of counterlanguage. the 3 chapters of the e-book are devoted to Scholem’s Hebraist lamentation, Kraft’s Germanist steadfastness and Strauss’s polyglot discussion, respectively. The exam in their correspondences, diaries, scholarship and literary oeuvres demonstrates how counteractive writing practices helped confront concrete and metaphorical crises of language to provide compelling possible choices to literary silence, amnesia or paralysis that have been brought on via cultural marginality and dislocation.
