Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hayim Nahman Bialik is considered one of the greatest Hebrew poets of modern times. As he possessed a thorough command of Hebrew and the unusual ability to use fully the resources of the language, his literary career is touted as a turning point in modern Hebrew literature. He greatly influenced and, to a large degree, anticipated the Hebrew spoken in modern Israel.<P>Several poems, particularly his immensely popular children's verse, has been set to music. He is considered Israel's national poet. Until now there has been little academic attention in English about Bialik's work; Hadari's new translation of a selection of his major work fills that void.

Book News Annotation:

The Lithuanian, Hayim Nahman Bialik (1873-1934), is considered one of the greatest poets in Hebrew. A 50-page introduction on Bialik and his work precedes 83 translated poems written in the two decades preceding and following the turn of the 20th century. Poems are not organized thematically or temporally.
