The poetic work of Benjamin Fondane appears in our view as representative of the embodiment of the ambiguous relationship between the Jewish writer and Western literature. Through his works, we can retrace the course followed by the Jew-poet in the Western world. Indeed, for Benjamin Fondane, born Benjamin Wechsler, the conquest of identity was harsh: it was to be a lifetime achievement, gained through the existential experience of the man, the Jew, and the poet.
