J is For Jewish Dramatists

I refuse to use the picture of a bowl of chicken soup to go with this article.One would wish that Mr. Billington had gone further with this article,  but if he had, maybe he would hve stolen my thunder.  His distinction between dramatists who are Jewish, who resist being labelled “Jewish” and Jewish dramatists–writers who “derive their vitality from their cultural specificity”–is hardly fresh, it is one of the distinctions that it is worth making. Glad that MB used the “J” for this.
