Overview

Poetry. Jewish Studies. Translated from the Yiddish by Mary Schulman. Edited by Mary Schulman, Joan Brauman and David Weintraub. This collection brings together in English the work of one of the most gifted and remarkable Jewish poets of the Soviet Union. Suffused with a consciousness of suffering, homelessness, and inevitably, the Holocaust, these modernist poems are meditative, elegiac, and prophetic in tone, and touch on the themes of loss, loneliness, displacement, war, and the yearning for renewal. Inextricably bound up with Markish's Eastern European Jewish identity, they are also intensely personal, modern, and universal. (Includes both the Yiddish and English text).

Meet the Author

Considered the "Jewish Byron" by many, Peretz Markish (1895-1952), was born in Volhynia, Ukraine, and went on to write forty works in Yiddish, twenty of which were translated into Russian. In 1921, in Warsaw, he formed the grup called The Gang, which struggled against realism in literature, and he coedited the expressionist Khaliastre Almanakh, which contained illustrations by Marc Chagall. His own poems expressed Jewish sorrow and hope. In 1926, he returned to the Soviet Union where he produced his best-known works, including those expressing Soviet patriotism and his sorrow at the extermination of the Jews. He was awarded the Order of Lenin in 1939, and executed in 1952, accused of Jewish nationalism.

    Emotional, Timeless, and Classic

    Peretz Markish is truly the greatest poet, and this collection is long overdue. The translations perfectly capture the original yiddish. It is always thrilling for me when something like this comes along, this is one of those books I know I will always reach for in those times when I'm in need of inspiration. Writing about this book makes me want to go and read it some more, so I shall!
