Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The writings of David Bergelson are now available for readers seeking a more complete picture of worldwide Yiddish literature. This volume is composed of two short stories and a novella which bring to life Bergelson's rich, elegiac prose in an excellent translation by Golda Werman.

Synopsis:

The writings of David Bergelson - virtually unknown to readers in the United States - are now available in this exciting collection Composed of two short stories and a novella, this volume brings to life Bergelson's rich, elegiac prose. Golda Werman's highly literate translation perfectly captures his elusive literary style. Bergelson's writings evoke the declining world of small-town Eastern European Jews. His world captures the dreariness of the uncommitted life. His characters are cast adrift in a society whose traditions are coming unhinged by powerful modernist forces. In her Introduction Werman offers readers an engaging and tragic portrait of Bergelson, who was arrested on orders from Stalin and died in a prison camp in 1952.
