A penetrating study of the anti-Semitic attitudes held by major American naturalist authors


"Pizer sets out to document anti-Semitic attitudes among a coterie of canonical American writers at the turn of the last century, and I know of no other study like it. It's elegantly written, soundly argued, well informed, and meticulously documented. The book will attract specialists in American literature as well as more general readers interested in the eruption of anti-Semitism in Europe and America in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. It will become a standard reference on the subject." Gary Scharnhorst, author of Bret Harte: Opening the American Literary West "This is a crisp, concise, direct address to an issue that haunts American literary naturalism; and much of the extant commentary on the mode and its major authors seems hesitant or evasive on the subject. Without apology or spin, Pizer looks carefully at the manifestations of anti-Semitism in half a dozen writers of continuing importance, and he offers fact-based, plausible explanations of relevant history and personal motives. Pizer is one of the reigning masters in the study of American literary naturalism, and he knows the primary and secondary sources inside out." Bruce Michelson, author of Literary Wit and Printer's Devil: Mark Twain and the American Publishing Revolution
