This book challenges the popular notion that there is no Modern Hebrew Surrealist literature. It focuses upon the writings of three lesser-known Hebrew authors - Menashe Levin, Yitzhak Oren, and Yitzhak Orpaz - and considers the nature and function of their particular strands of Hebrew Surrealism. The book takes as its departure the alleged absence of Surrealism in Modern Hebrew literature, an absence that suggests that Surrealism has made little impact upon Hebrew and Israeli culture. It suggests that the relationship is more complex. In so doing, the book moves beyond the conception of Surrealism as a regimented artistic movement and proposes instead that we broaden our definition to encompass the multifarious guises in which it appears. *** "Miller's literary analysis, perhaps the greatest strength of this study, demonstrates a keen understanding of the key concepts of Surrealism; an intimate familiarity with the authors and texts at hand; and a sensitive awareness to the blind spots in Hebrew literary historiography." - H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online, May 2014????
