Rhetoric and Nation: The Formation of Hebrew National Culture, 1880-1990 by Shai Ginsburg

Recent and commonly accepted criticism holds that written and spoken
Hebrew reveals a shared logic, a collective rhetoric that is identifiable and
can be traced as an evolving phenomenon throughout the centuries. In
Rhetoric and Nation, Ginsburg charts the emergence and formation of the
Hebrew discourse of the nation from the late nineteenth century through the
late twentieth century. In doing so, he challenges these notions of a common
rhetoric by considering three areas of writing: literature, literary and
cultural criticism, and ideological and political writings. Ginsburg argues
that each text presents its own singular logic. Some writing is determined
by social and historical context. Other writings are determined by the biographies
of their authors, still others by genre. Through close readings
of key canonical texts, Rhetoric and Nation demonstrates that the Hebrew
discourse of the nation should not be conceived as coherent and cohesive
but, rather, as an assemblage of singular, disparate moments.
