Abstract:

Ch. 2 (pp. 14-39) discusses the role of Jews in German culture between 1918-39, and how they coped with antisemitism. The rest of the book examines Roth's writings. Focuses on his first two novels: "Das Spinnennetz" (1923) and "Tarabas: Ein Gast auf dieser Erde" (1934). The first, discussed on pp. 40-104, is a visionary outline of the crisis of the early Weimar Republic and a psychologically persuasive representation of the promotion of an antisemitic careerist who, from the position of a simple teacher, becomes the Imperial Head of Security. The second, discussed on pp. 148-212, also focuses on the figure of an antisemite. Discusses, also, the journalistic work "Juden auf Wanderschaft" (1925-27), which deals with victims of antisemitism, and Roth's novel "The Antichrist" (1934) which discusses Jew-hatred. Roth's interpretation of antisemitism as anti-Christianity must be understood in the context of his conversion to Catholicism, while his explication of Nazi antisemitism does not take into account the modern components of Jew-hatred.
