Jordan Finkin's incisive work, A Rhetorical Conversation: Jewish Discourse in Modern Yiddish .
Jordan Finkin's incisive work, A Rhetorical Conversation: Jewish Discourse in Modern Yiddish Literature, is an indispensable new contribution to the fields of modern Jewish literature and Yiddish linguistics alike. Combining precise literary analysis with nuanced examination of linguistic elements, Finkin shows how the study and speech patterns of Talmudic scholars first entered conversational Yiddish and later modern Yiddish literature.
Jordan D. Finkin's intention is to demonstrate that Yiddish literature is greatly indebted to conversational structures based on Talmudic and rabbinic discourse. Finkin brings to his analysis an extensive and sophisticated understanding of linguistics, using linguistics' tools to shed light upon the moments in which Yiddish writing interacts with, and uses, spoken forms. The book as a whole seeks to prove how much modern Yiddish literature owes to its dialogic nature.

This book is about Jewish language. The fact that Jews speak and write in distinctive ways is well known. (The journalist Mike Royko called it “Hebonics.”) These forms of expression actually draw from many sources and have been employed in popular culture from Henry Roth’s Call It Sleep to the novels of Saul Bellow to contemporary television. What has received less attention is what allowed these modern forms to flow from a rich body of Yiddish literature. This book fills that gap by exploring the language of modern Yiddish literature, addressing emblematically why Jews answer a question with a question. Through a series of case studies, A Rhetorical Conversation explores various distinctive aspects of Yiddish literature to explain the nature and importance of Jewish discourse: the way of speaking, writing, arguing, and thinking developed by Yiddish culture based on prolonged and intimate contact with traditional texts.
