Title
'Of Kith and Kin': A Bibliographical and Critical Study of Cultural Influences on the Prose of A.M. Klein
Abstract
The author argues that poet, novelist and journalist A.M. Klein's (1902-1972) writing is defined by his Jewish experience. His Judaic culture stands at the centre of all of his activities, be they in literature or in public life. She maintains that Klein's Montreal Jewish background, with its roots in the East European Shtetl, clearly inspired his work and his life. The thesis is a biographical and critical evaluation of Klein's journalism and short fiction, analyzing the cultural influences of his Jewish heritage and Montreal background on his creative works.
