Re: Research Query: Insanity and gender in modern Jewish fiction

On interactions of insanity and gender in modern Jewish fiction, see:

I.L. Peretz, "Be-agaf ha-meshuga'im" (Yid. Fun dul-hoyz), esp. the first section, "Doctor or Patient"?

The following work may also be helpful: Dafna Katsnelson-Bank, Ha-shiga'on ba-sifrut ha-'ivrit be-reshit ha-me'ah he-esrim (2005)

Another lead to follow would be the theme of the dybbuk in modern Hebrew and Yiddish fiction.

Re: Research Query: Insanity and gender in modern Jewish fiction

Regarding "insanity and gender" in modern Jewish fiction:
See the character of Miriam Devorah in S.Y. Agnon's "The Hazzanim" in "A City in Its Fullness," ed. Mintz and Saks (Toby Press), pp 78-97 (in Hebrew in his "Ir uMeloah"). See also the articles by Mintz, Arbell, and Katzman:

and the chapter by Alan Mintz in his "Ancestral Tales" (SUP).
