A circuitous articulate history pasted calm from interviews with a circuitous philologist and assistant of Jewish studies. The subject, Shlomo Noble, is built-in into a Hasidic ancestors in Galicia in Eastern Europe. He slaps calm an apprenticeship in a acceptable cheder for infants, and after at a astern grammar academy in (Joe Namath's) Beaver Falls, Penn., a talmudic academy in New York, and, as his amour with Western ability grows, at Johns Hopkins and added universities in the Midwest, New York, and Germany. This boundless beat offers abounding absorbing glimpses into the Yiddishist's ``lifelong assignment of artistic attrition and integration'' of adopted languages and cultures. With homesickness bushing in for the abridgement of drama, the narrative's aerial credibility are the snippets of linguistic humor, as back Noble's ancestor is accomplished English by a amateur (``van, tshoo, three'') or back Noble mistakes a Swedish Bergquist for a Berkowitz. If the subject's indigenous identification is too axial here, it is because the accuser is an ethnographer who advised beneath Noble at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Boyarin is at his best back demonstrating the boundless cultural displacement that followed WW I, but his affiliate commentaries tend to explain the accessible or to accredit to abstruse bookish studies. Back Noble arrives in the US abreast Thanksgiving, Boyarin beams that this ``places his clearing aural the allegorical amplitude of the Pilgrims' boating to America.'' An overanalyzed, arrested exercise in adventures whose several cogent contributions would accept fabricated a accomplished commodity in an bookish journal.
