Modern Hebrew Literature: Nation and Narration

Modern Hebrew Literature: Nation and Narration


For this session we will be discussing an excerpt from A.B. Yehoshua's important novel, Mr. Mani.  This novel was first published to wide acclaim in Israel in 1990. It tells the multi-generational story of the Manis, a Sephardi family regularly moving around the Levant and the Mediterranean during the last 150 years or so.

The Garden Of The Finzi-Continis

This month's film selection is Italian, made by celebrated director Vittorio de Sica. The Garden Of The Finzi-Continis, based on the novel by the same name by author Giorgio Bassani, tells the story of a group of young Italian Jewish friends in the 1930's and the effect that the rising tide of Fascism and Antisemitism has on their lives. The film was awarded the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1972.
