The chapter continues the discussion of the development of Jewish literature from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century. Among the topics covered are Achad ha'am's dominance during the 1890s and the challenges it faced in the first decade of the twentieth century; and how the success of Bialik's poetic revolution belied Achad ha'am's Zionist prognosis that only the existence of a Hebrew-speaking community in Palestine would levitate Hebrew poetry to the level of connotative and imaginative effectiveness.

Keywords:   Achad ha'am, Jewish literature, Bialik, Hebrew poetry, poetic language
