 Between Snow and Desert Heat - Russian Influences on Hebrew Literature 1870-1970 - Rina Lapidus
In both style and substance, Hebrew literature, from the second half of the nineteenth century to well into the twentieth, was unmistakably influenced by Russian prose and poetry.
In nine fascinating case studies, Rina Lapidus has systematically identified those Hebrew authors and poets upon whom the Russian influence is most striking and upon whom it seems to have exerted the greatest power.
After examining the textual parallels in the works of both the influencing and the influenced authors, she presents, when relevant, intertextual sources for the passages discussed—such as various Russian idioms or linguistic or literary patterns commonly found in Russian literature.

 Dickens, Charles (1812 - 1870) | Introduction: Gothic Literature
Some of his characters are grotesques; Dickens loved the style of eighteenth-century Gothic romance, even though the popularity of those novels was on the wane, and his fiction features many elements of that genre.
Dickens was thus a late contributor to the development of Gothic English literature.
When he died in 1870, England mourned the death of one of its favorite authors.

 Shtetl: Yiddish Literature in America, 1870-2000
Out of apathy to language, Yiddish literature in America created language-consciousness, and for a declining generation it created a beautiful linguistic instrument." The Yiddish writers of America helped preserve and stimulate loyalty to the Jewish people and to Jewish religious and cultural values and ideals.
American Yiddish literature provides the most complete, most condensed and most authentic record of the changing image of American Jewry and of the Jewish people as a whole in the twentieth century.
Together with the emergence of the modern Jewish religious movements, the rise of Jewish Socialism, Zionism the Hebraic renaissance and the birth of Israel, the flowering of modern Yiddish literature and culture all over the world in the first half of the twentieth century is a miracle of Jewish creative survival.

 American Literature I: Literature to 1870
In the nineteenth century, as Susan Williams has noted, “the increasing availability of [daguerreotype] portraits to the middle class was paralleled by the increasing availability of printed texts.” Williams’
Confounding Images, Cathy N. Davidson’s “Photographs of the Dead,” and other studies have proposed a reciprocal relationship between the two media: understandings of the daguerreotype’s role were inflected by literary representations, and, conversely, the development of daguerreotypy influenced literature of the period.
This paper will explore Edgar Allan Poe’s work in the medium of magazines and journals as a way to trace the technological innovations that lead to changes in understandings of temporality, and therefore, new forms of literacy.
