This literary biography brings the life and work of H. N. Bialik, widely known as the National Hebrew Poet, to the English reader for the first time.

In this work, segments of Bialik's best-known oeuvre are rendered in English translations that illustrate his power of expression and mastery of language. Feinstein's research and interpretation also show how Bialik intertwined personal and collective elements of imagery and emotion that endeared him to his readers. Extensive endnotes, bibliography, glossary, suggestions for further reading, and an index of works by Bialik make this literary biography of the National Hebrew Poet a valuable resource in Modern Hebrew Literature.This literary biography brings the life and work of H.
