Ruth R. Wisse is a leading scholar of Yiddish and Jewish literary studies and one of our most fearless public intellectuals on issues relating to Jewish society and culture. In this celebratory volume, Wisse's colleagues pay tribute to her with a collection of critical essays whose subjects break new ground in Yiddish, Hebrew, Israeli, American, European, and Holocaust literature. Inspired by her award-winning book, "The Modern Jewish Canon", Wisse's fellow scholars take up many questions raised by her definition of Jewish canonicity, while offering new readings of such disparate writers as George Eliot, Isaac Babel, J. D. Salinger, S. Y. Agnon, Philip Roth, and many others.
