The reception of Grimms' fairy tales : responses, reactions, revisions( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a book, Grimms' Fairy Tales has been with us less than two hundred years, yet it is recognized as one of the most widely known tomes in the world. Explanations for the book's popularity and longevity have typically been one-dimensional generalizations about a universal quality residing within the tales themselves. The tales endure, we are told, because they are timeless, true, or good." "The Reception of Grimms' Fairy Tales rejects the notion that Grimms' tales have enjoyed continued success because of their "ageless magic." Instead this volume explores the historical, cultural, and personal factors that have caused the tales to elicit, from their original publication to the present, extremely diverse responses, reactions, and revisions." "The history of the tales' reception goes far beyond the simple success story of a good book that has been widely accepted because of its moral and aesthetic appeal. Those who encounter the stories - scholars, translators, editors, readers, writers, storytellers, or artists - have interpreted the stories from their own perspectives and for their own purposes. The reception, then, reflects a dynamic process involving the acceptance, rejection, transformation, and revision of a protean book of stories." "This illustrated volume brings together premier scholars of the fairy tale, including Ruth B. Bottigheimer, Maria Tatar, and Jack Zipes, with acclaimed creative writers such as Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter, Jane Yolen, and award-winning artist Trina Schart Hyman. Ranging from scholarly essay to personal memoir and fictional recreation, their work embodies the diverse responses that readers have had to Grimms' fairy tales."

Between exile and exodus : Argentinian Jewish immigration to Israel, 1948-1967 / Sebastian Klor ; translated by Lenn Schramm by Sebastian Klor( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between exile and exodus : Argentinian Jewish immigration to Israel, 1948-1967 examines the case of the 16,500 Argentine Jewish immigrants who arrived in Israel during the first two decades of its existence (1948-1967). Based on a thorough investigation of various archives in Argentina and Israel, author Sebastian Klor presents a sociohistoric analysis of that immigration with a comparative perspective. Although many studies have explored Jewish immigration to the State of Israel, few have dealt with the immigrants themselves
The Detroit Public Library : an American classic by Barbara Madgy Cohn( )

Witnessing unbound : Holocaust representation and the origins of memory by Henri Lustiger-Thaler( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Primary witnessing, in its original forms--from survivor and bystander testimonies, to memoirs and diaries--inform our cultural understanding of the multiple experiences of the Holocaust. Henri Lustiger Thaler and Habbo Knoch look at many of these expressions of primary witnessing in Witnessing Unbound: Holocaust Representation and the Origins of Memory, which is particularly relevant today with the hastening decline of the Holocaust survivor demographic and the cultural spaces for representation it leaves in its wake, in addition to the inevitable and cyclical search for generational relevancy, siphoned through acts of memory. The essays in Witnessing Unbound are written by some of the leading figures on the theme of witnessing as well as scholars exploring new primary sources of knowledge about the Holocaust and genocide. These include a focus on the victims: the perished and survivors whose discursive worlds are captured in testimonies, diaries, and memoirs; the witnessing of peasant bystanders to the terror; historical religious writing by rabbis during and after the war as a proto memoir for destroyed communities, and the archive as a solitary witness, a constructed memory in the aftermath of a genocide. The experiences showcased and analyzed within this memorializing focus introduce previously unknown voices, and end with reflections on the Belzec Memorial and Museum. One survivor moves hearts with the simple insight, "I died in Auschwitz, but no one knows [sees] it." In counterpoint is a court case with SS General Karl Wolff, who has conveniently forgotten his crimes during the Holocaust. Original experience and its reimagination within contemporary frameworks make sense of an event that continues to adapt and change metaphorically and globally. As one of the contributors writes: "In my mind, the 'era of the witness' begins when the historical narrative consists of first-person accounts." Witnessing Unbound augers in the near completion of that defining era, by introducing a collection of diverse reflections and mediations on witnessing and memory. A must-read for the further understanding of the Holocaust, its cruel reality, and its afterdeath. --
