This study examines the impact of racial, gender, and religious constructs of Jewish masculinity on a select group of male writers including George Du Maurier, Theodor Herzl, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, and Philip Roth during the Modernist and Postmodern eras. In reading the work of these authors, Davison demonstrates how religious-based prejudices as well as doctrinal Judaic concepts were sustained in the discourse of race and gender surrounding "the Jew." The project engages a dynamic composed of the historically constitutive Jewish racial portrait, the psychosexual impact of that racial theory as internalized by Jewish males, and differing or conflicting discussions of Judaic-based gender and codes of male behavior. By focusing alternately on non-Jewish and Jewish writers, Davison explores how the racial/gender construct of "the feminized Jew" was pivotal to each in negotiating male-selfhood during his encounter with modernity. The study engages these issues during the Dreyfus era, within early Zionism, and in post-war High Modernism. In a final chapter on Roth, Davison explores how the author’s postmodernism remains tethered to Jewish history, liberalism, gender, and Judaic concepts.

About the Author:

Neil R. Davison is Associate Professor of Modernism, Irish Studies, and Jewish Cultural Studies in the Department of English at Oregon State University. He is the author of James Joyce, Ulysses, and the Construction of Jewish Identity (Cambridge, 1996)

Review:

"Davison...clearly and thoroughly engages with the interrelation of race, gender, politics, and religion as they construct the modern Jewish man...Davison’s work thoroughly illustrated the ambiguities and difficulties that surround ad gendered constructions of "the Jew." – Maggie McKinley, Harper College, Philip Roth Studies

"Neil Davison’s study of the ways Jewish masculinity has been represented in some key late-nineteenth and twentieth century texts situates the gendering of the Jewish male body against the background of the Zionist movement in successive historical phases." –Robert A. Nye, Oregon State University, Gender and History

"Perceptive and stimulating...a fine book that brings together so much useful material, offers so much textual and cultural insight, and raises questions that have not been asked comprehensively, and in one place, before." –Debra Shostak, The College of Wooster, James Joyce Quarterly

"Neil Davison’s Jewishness and Masculinity from the Modern to the Postmodern offers a well-researched and most welcome contribution to the study of these and other Jewish masculinities...One of the book’s main contributions is to broaden the discussion of Jewish masculinities while also placing it in historical context." –Brett Ashley Kaplan, University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, Textual Practice

"Ambitious and erudite" – Efraim Sicher, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Partial Answers
