Abstract

This essay analyzes the structure and function of the literary texts published by the main Jewish periodicals in Liberal Italy. It explores them as part of a polifonic conversation, an experimental debate on identity, a redefinition of boundaries, an endless search for a balance between integration and preservation of Jewish peculiarities. This textual production, of low literary quality and mainly written by rabbis and teachers, had a clear normative and moral character: it depicted models of positive and negative behavior, intending to sketch the ideal modern Italian Jew/Jewess. Literature, or better domestic fiction, allowed for a consciously vague but insisted reference to the existence of a collective Jewish identity that should be preserved after emancipation, through – among other things – the condemnation of intermarriage.
