Han Feiwu
This paper probes into the causes of the suffering figures of Bernard Malamud's The Assistant from angles such as Jewish culture, history, and society. Through the analysis of the suffering figures in The Assistant, we find that the Jews don't suffer for themselves but the whole human beings. Hence, the suffering figures in his fictions not only have the feature of jewishness but also universally symbolic meaning.
