Summary
"The Silver Candelabra and Other Stories: A Century of Jewish Argentine Literature chronologically traces the history of twentieth-century Jewish Argentine literature as it has evolved through three generations of writers. Within this collection, the earlier, more lyrical stories of struggle are characterized by their specifically Jewish concerns: immigration, assimilation, Zionism, antisemitism, Jewish culture and the Holocaust. The later stories written by the first and second generations of Jews born in Argentina, reflect how the community integrated into the social, cultural, political and economic mainstream - even, at times, how the community became wholly assimilated into Argentine culture, addressing the loss of their religious heritage as a significant problem of contemporary life."--BOOK JACKET. "With a preface by Darrell B. Lockhart, lecturer in Spanish at the University of Arizona, biographical information on each of the authors, an overview of Argentine history and a bibliography, The Silver Candelabra is an excellent resource for anyone interested in Judaic and Latin American literature."--BOOK JACKET
