Abstract

The last part of the book offers yet another perspective on this overwhelming encounter through an in-depth exploration of the modernist endeavor of reinventing Jewish traditions. Pinsker refers to a number of modern reworkings of religious texts, such as Haim Nachman Bialik's (The book of legends), which in some senses created a new Talmud to replace the old. In light of Pinsker's discussion, it is interesting to note that The Book of Legends has gradually become one of the most important mediators between Jewish tradition and Modern Hebrew literature, one that is still evoked in numerous contemporary Hebrew prose works. Indeed, it seems that the true significance of Literary Passports lies in its exploration of literary, historical, and cultural processes that continued to influence Hebrew literature long after the specific period of Pinsker's study. In many respects, the book itself serves as a "literary passport" providing access for the reader to geographical locations and ideological mindsets long neglected by traditional, Zionist historiography. This is the kind of a passport that has the potential to open the Hebrew literary tradition to a new generation of writers and readers who can now follow Meir Liphshitz and his many precursors on
