This chapter discusses developments in Yiddish literature during the inter-bellum period. It describes how Hebrew and Yiddish literature began following their own paths, evidenced by modernistic outburst or surge in both literatures after World War I and the civil struggles that followed it. In Yiddish, this surge was far more sweeping and immediately influential since it was articulated mainly in a new kind of poetry. But by the mid-1920s the skies of Yiddish modernism gradually became overcast. The issue, which from now on would cast an ever-lengthening shadow, was that of the survival of Yiddish and of Yiddish literature.

Keywords:   Jewish literature, Yiddish literature, war years, World War I, Yiddish poetry, modernism
