The article offers information on the book "Hebrew Tales," by Hyman Hurwitz and notes that the traditional Jewish wisdom is harmonized with contemporary British culture. The author offers his views on Hurwitz's work towards the Talmud, in comparison to the work and lives of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge on the profound possibilities and limitations of Romantic sympathy. It discusses the contributions of the Jews of England to either Enlightenment or Romantic thought and how William Hazlitt, an advocate of Jewish naturalization had managed to balance respect for the Enlightenment ideals.
