Phobic Reading, Modernist Form, and the Figure of the Antisemite

(p.1) Introduction
Modernist Form and the Myth of Jewification

Neil Levi

Fordham University Press

This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to show that what is referred to as the anti-Semitic interpretation of modernist form should be regarded as integral to the history of European modernism. It examines the ways in which the anti-Semitic fantasy of a mobile, dangerous, pervasive, contagious Jewish spirit—the myth of Jewification or Judaization—shaped both the interpretation and creation of modernist form. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   European modernism, modernist form, anti-Semitism, Jews, Jewification
