Review: Mysticism in Twentieth Century Hebrew Literature

Mysticism in Twentieth-Century Hebrew Literature by Hamutal Bar-Yosef was reviewed by Galili Shahar (Tel Aviv University) in Studies in Contemporary Jewry, vol. 29. Shahar writes:

“Grounded in excellent scholarship, Mysticism in Twentieth Century Hebrew Literature is a wide-ranging and comprehensive work. Bar-Yosef is very familiar with the Hebrew literary field and draws rich portraits of 20th-century poetic circles. . . . [T]his work is a gift to the field of Jewish and Hebrew literary studies, offering as well a fruitful perspective for the study of Israeli culture through and beyond secularism.”
