About this product
- DescriptionNotables such as David Bergelson - who helmed the short-lived Yiddish periodical called In Harness - and Der Nister and David Hodshtein come to life as do Leyb Kvitko, Peretz Markish, Itsik Fefer, Moshe Litvakov, Yekhezkel Dobrushin, and Nokhum Oislender. Gennady J. Estraikh charts the course of their artistic and political flowering and decline and considers the effects of geography - provincial vs. urban - and party politics upon literary development and aesthetics. No other book concentrates on this aspect of the Jewish intellectual scene r has any book unveiled the scale and intensity of Yiddish Communist literary life in the 1920s and 1930s or the contributions its writers made to Jewish culture.
