Summary
From the Talmud to the latest collection of short stories, the anthology has been a ubiquitous presence in Jewish literature throughout its history, and has played a seminal role in the creation, transmission, and preservation of Jewish culture since ancient times. And yet of all literary genres the anthology may be the most denigrated and least understood. This volume represents a major first step in the study of the genre and of the different functions it serves as a literary form and as a medium of canonization. The book comprises eighteen essays devoted to anthological works in Jewish literature
