Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Gordin (1953-1909) was a famous dramatist of the golden age of Yiddish theater in New York. Kaplan (creative nonfiction writing, Ryerson U., Toronto), who won a 1994 award for her play Gordin in America, introduces her great-grandfather in this biography based on many years of research into her ancestor. She traces his Jewish-Christian Russian roots, controversies over some of his plays, and why he was dubbed the "Yiddish Ibsen" and "Jewish Shakespeare." Several family photos are included.
