This paper explores the role of the Yiddish Magelene adaptation within the European narrative tradition. To uncover seemingly minor changes and expose the original agenda of this adaptation, this paper offers a close reading of the text through the lens of Spinoza’s Ethics suggesting that the text exhibits a more individualized worldview by offering an insight into the internal processes of the protagonists. This paper seeks to track these changes in the text’s construction of subjectivity with regard to three major points: activity and passivity of the characters, expansion of communicative space, and relativization of sources of authority (God and the narrator).
