Abstract: Meïr Goldschmidt's debut novel, A Jew, published in Danish in 1845, is one of the first Jewish novels and one of the first examples of a modern Jewish literature. This talk will examine how Goldschmidt's specific Jewish reading habits influenced his development of the novel and his use of language. Through a close reading of the text, Goldschmidt's position in the Danish Golden Age will be reevaluated and his challenge to Romanticism at large revealed.
