Book cover

"The second volume of the series Yiddish: Editions & Research, presents the poetry of Avrom Sutzkever (1913-2010), one of the greatest Yiddish writers of the 20 th century. The themes of his work span his early childhood in Siberia, youth in Vilna, Lithuania, the catastrophe of the Holocaust, and a new life in Israel. Sutzkever is a modernist poet of great originality whose work is rooted in the cultural heritage of the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe. This is the first bilingual edition of Sutzkever's work to present a substantial selection of poetry from all periods of his creative life. A previously unpublished lecture by the poet sheds light on his poetic credo and a literary-biographical essay by the translator, Heather Valencia, together with notes on the poems, make this literary oeuvre accessible to a wide readership"--back cover.
