Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Expertly translated from the Yiddish by award-winning author and translator Curt Leviant, this edition features the fables printed in both English and Yiddish.

Book News Annotation:

Individual fables by Yiddish poet and writer Shtaynbarg (1880-1932) have appeared in various English anthologies, and there is a thriving critique of his work in Yiddish, but Leviant (Hebrew and Yiddish, Rutgers U.) offers the first collection in English devoted to his work, with the Yiddish on facing pages. The fables, one to three pages long, elevate interactions between mundane objects, animals, or people into spiritual encounters. They draw on the ancient tradition of Hebrew fables.
