Summary
An essay tracing the development of Yiddish literature in Soviet Russia from the revolution to Stalin prefaces powerful, sophisticated, and imaginative tales by David Bergelson, Moshe Kulbak, and Der Nister
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In the entire thwarted and scarred history of modern Yiddish literature there is no chapter more tragic than that of the Soviet Yiddish writers. Elsewhere in Europe scores of Yiddish writers were destroyed by avowed enemies; here, in the Soviet Union, a generation of gifted Yiddish novelists and poets cae to its end in the prison cells or labor camps of the very state to which they had pledged themselves, sometimes with naive enthusiasm, sometimes with wry foreboding. Except to a handful of Yiddish readers scattered across the globe, the work of these writers is unknown and their fate hardly remembered. In this book the editor and translator have briefly told the story of the Soviet Yiddish writers and then made available a representative-certainly not a comprehensive- selection of the short fiction that some of them composed.
