Description

The subject of this work is the Russian-born Canadian-Jewish poet and author of "Hitleriad", A.M. Klein. The book examines Klein's representations of the post-war humanist crisis. It considers the extent to which Klein's Canadian Jewish identity informs the poet's quest for the ethical restitution of the world at large, and contests the accepted critical view of Klein as a Jewish poet unable to escape the parochialism of the Canadian literary scene. The work also outlines the poetics of Klein's quest for language and form which would sustain the meaningfulness of art in the face of devastating historical reality.
