Original paper wrappers. 8vo. Pages 270-278 (ie. 9 pages) ; 23 cm. “A careful study of the literary life of any nation leads to a most surprising result. There seems to be no book which, as it were, would be quite a new and independent production, and the more one studies the literary currents of the time, the more one realises an inner connection between one book and the other. One can trace an almost interminable chain although in not a few occasions the intermediary links seem to be broken or to be missing. And yet such connections cannot be denied. Often the authors are unconscious of the fact that they are acting upon a common impulse. There may not be a direct contact or an immediate dependance of one author upon the other but one can easily observe that at a given time the very same problem is discussed by authors of various shades and various characters. ” Offprint from Jewish Studies in Memory of George A.
