Nineteenth-Century US Literature in Middle Eastern Languages

Edinburgh University Press

Reading Judas Maccabaeus as rendered by Manchester Zionist, Joseph Massel, Chapter 1 explores the recruitment of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow for Hebrew language revival and the recovery of sacred Hebrew history. Published at the turn of the 20th century, Massel’s Yehūdāh ha-Makābī offers a Judaic revision of Longfellow’s Judaic drama, translating his American biblicism into authentic biblical idioms. Complex in its national motivations and religious foregrounds, Chapter 1 offers an apt opening to the book as a whole, establishing its focus upon textual circularity, exploring annular transmissions unfolding from ancient Middle Eastern sources, to American literary expression, to modern Middle Eastern rendition.

Keywords:   Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Joseph Massel, Judas Maccabæus, Hebrew
