To treat the development of critical and scholarly writing about Jewish literature, this entry includes three articles. The first two treat criticism of Hebrew and Yiddish literature, respectively, detailing the major critics and scholars of literature in each language, the journals in which their writings appeared, and the major critical genres. Russian Literary Criticism takes note of important Jewish figures who developed the major schools of Russian criticism from the formalists through the Tartu School. See also Literary Journals.
