Research on Jewish American Writers in Recent Ten Years



In recent ten years, Jewish American writers emerge in large numbers. Among them, Nathan Englander, Jonathan Safran Foer and Michael Chabon are distinguished and popular among the readers. Their fictions represent the third generation of the Jewish writers and have their own characteristics, such as holocaust, Jewish identity and Jewish problems and so on. The thesis tries to summarize the literary review of the three writers and their common points in their works.
