A review of the books, Marrano as Metaphor: The Jewish Presence in French Writing by Elaine Marks and Modern Jewish Writers in France by Pierre Horn is presented. Recent publications have focused more closely upon the emergence of Franco–Jewish belles-lettres and have consequently provided engaging techniques for exploring the complex issue of Jewish identity. Whether perusing Yale French Studies or the collection of essays presented in Auschwitz and After: Race, Culture and “the Jewish Question” in France (1995), one notes that scholars have endeavored to provide meaningful images of the complex and occasionally contradictory nature of Jewish identity in France as communicated through literary discourse. The two works to be examined here fall into this generic category. Both texts similarly demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses that underlie such ventures.
