Abstract
Jewish- American literature holds an important place in the literary history of United States. The manifesto of Jewish-American literature is to give voice to conflicting pulls between secular society and Jewish tradition, which were acutely felt by the immigrants. Holocaust or the annihilation of the Jews during the Second World War is a dominant factor of the Jewish-American literature. Cultural identity, cultural rediscovery and assimilation into mainstream America are the other issues about which the literature is written.
Keywords
Jewish-American Poetry; Cultural identity; Zionism; Anti-Semitism.
