Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Among the finest prose stylists in Yiddish literature, David Bergelson (1884-1952) was caught up in many of the twentieth century's most defining events. In 1909 he emerged as a pioneer of modernist prose, observing the slow decay of the Tsarist empire. In 1917 he welcomed the Revolution, but the bloodshed of the ensuing Civil War and the dogmatism of the Bolsheviks drove him to emigration. For more than a decade (1921-1934), he lived in Weimar Germany, travelling extensively in Europe and the United States. Shocked by the Wall Street Crash of 1929, disheartened by the decline of Yiddish culture in the West, and inspired by Soviet promises to create a Jewish republic, Bergelson became a Communist sympathiser and moved towards socialist realism. Returning to the Soviet Union after Hitler's rise to power, Bergelson flourished in a state-sponsored cultural environment in which his work was widely read both in Yiddish and in Russian translation. After Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, Bergelson became a prominent member of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee, writing extensively about the Holocaust. In the paranoia of the Cold War years, the Stalinist regime accused him of anti-Soviet activities and, after a secret military trial he was executed on 12 August 1952, his 68th birthday.For years, critics have argued that Bergelson produced his best work before the Revolution, and afterwards largely wrote Communist propaganda. David Bergelson: From Modernism to Socialist Realism challenges this view by examining Bergelson's entire oeuvre. The book argues that Bergelson continually reinvented himself as a writer, experimenting with style and narrative technique even under the most severe restrictions of Party dogma. With contributions from an international team of Bergelson experts, the volume offers a full-length biography, the first complete bibliography of Bergelson's work, translations of two of his most influential programmatic articles, and a range of essays dealing with all periods of the writer's life.With the contributions:Joseph Sherman — David Bergelson (1884–1952): A BiographyLev Bergelson — Memories of My Father: The Early Years (1918–1934)Daniela Mantovan — Language and Style in Nokh alemen (1913): Bergelson's Debt to FlaubertKerstin Hoge — For Children and Adults Alike: Reading Bergelson's 'Children's Stories' (1914–1919) as Narratives of Identity FormationSeth L.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What do the names D. Segal, Yitshak Varshavski, and Yitshak Bashevis have in common? Each is a pseudonym for the writer and Nobel laureate more widely known as Isaac Bashevis Singer. Prompted by the frequent requests for help of readers and researchers in the Dorot Jewish Division of The New York Public Library who were hunting for the original Yiddish versions of Singer's stories and novels published in translation, and seeing a need for an updated bibliography of Singer's works (David Neal Miller's Bibliography of Isaac Bashevis Singer only covered Singer's works through 1949), author Roberta Saltzman compiled this survey of Singer's works from 1960 through his death in 1991. The text is divided into three sections, each arranged alphabetically. Section A lists Singer's contributions to the Yiddish newspaper press; each entry includes the Yiddish title exactly as it appears in the original, an English translation of the title, and an indication of the pseudonym employed. Section B consists of Singer's works published in Yiddish in book form, while Section C lists all of Singer's works translated into English and published in book form. Brief biographical information on Singer, including his childhood in Poland and his immigration to America, is provided in the introduction. A must-have for readers, students, and scholars of Yiddish and of 20th century world literature, this volume marks the eagerly-awaited first appearance of Saltzman's identification of 11 full-length Singer novels and 11 novellas, untranslated from the Yiddish and unknown, a discovery hailed by the New York Observer as long ago as 1996 as providing "perhaps the literary find of the decade."
