Cynthia Ozick's comic art : from levity to liturgy by Sarah Blacher Cohen( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing to bear insights from Jewish, literary, and cultural studies, Sarah Blacher Cohen sheds new light on the works of one of America's foremost writers. Arguing persuasively that Ozick's fiction is a form of comedy, Cohen interweaves religion and literature, skillfully illuminating the complex relationship between the comic and the sacred. Where others have emphasized Ozick's intellectualism and Jewish learning, Cohen foregrounds whimsicality, grotesque realism, irony, satire, and exuberance as the defining characteristics of Ozick's art in such works as Trust, The Cannibal Galaxy, The Messiah of Stockholm, "The Pagan Rabbi," and the Puttermesser stories
