Title
Beyond the Ghetto and the Garrison: Jewish Canadian Boundaries
Abstract
The author compares the ghetto in Montreal Jewish literature (Mordecai Richler, Irving Layton, A.M. Klein, Leonard Cohen, Leon Edel and especially Saul Bellow), to the ghetto as constituting the experience of all Jews (Edmond Jabes, Franz Kafka, Albert Memmi, Naim Kattan). The Montreal Jewish ghetto is defined in terms of its opposition to the city's Francophone East and Anglophone West, to its Francophone Catholicism and Anglophone Protestantism.
