Bernard-Lazare (1865-1903) was once a French Jewish author and a primary mover within the Dreyfus Affair. After being fascinated by the Symbolist and anarchist activities, he took up the reason for Dreyfus in his brochure “Une erreur judiciaire” which expected Zola’s “J’accuse” via 3 years. He was once an early analyst of antisemitism and in later years an ardent Zionist whose outspoken perspectives provoked a lot controversy. The Dreyfus Affair lies on the heart of this ebook because it was once the turning-point in Bernard-Lazare’s life.

The first a part of the ebook strains Bernard-Lazare’s early profession: his devotion to Mallarmé and safety of the Symbolist aesthetic as a philosophy of freedom; his adoption of anarchist ideas which chuffed his love of freedom, his sympathy for oppressed individuality and minority teams, and his ardour for social justice; peculiarly his research of antisemitism the place, at the beginning, he argued for social assimilation basically to reject this concept later in want of cultural pluralism.

The moment half deals a heritage of the Dreyfus Affair and of ways Bernard-Lazare drew consciousness to the grave irregularities of the case and confident others of the probability posed to Republican democracy.

Finally, Nelly Wilson indicates how Bernard-Lazare got here to espouse Jewish nationalism in a extra radical and solitary manner than did Herzl, the founding father of Zionism, and the way, after his loss of life, his reminiscence used to be saved alive through Péguy, who observed in Bernard-Lazare the embodiment of the prophetic spirit.

“[A] finely-crafted study... Dr. Wilson has greater than mastered her subject... Readers will make the most of her paintings” — Michael R. Marrus, collage of Toronto
