Self as Transferable in Post-war Jewish Life: Reflections on Bernard Malamud's A New Life

Modernity offered an aimless reception to modern Jewish self. This research paper on Malamud’s A New Life analyses the unpredictable, wavering self in Jews that is contrary to the Jewish self-given in the Torah and in the Oral teachings in Judaism. The paper is framed with the concept, ‘to define a Jew is to define man’. Some of the areas of research include Jewish cultural assimilation, prevalence of postmodern notions in American Jews, the transferable attitudes in Jews and Jewish representation of man’s unsettled personality. The paper works on the particular differences in post-war Jewish attributions.
