Classic Yiddish stories of S.Y. Abramovitsh, Sholem Aleichem, and I.L. Peretz by Mendele Mokher Sefarim( Book )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Two novellas by S.Y. Abramovitsh open this collection of the best short works by three influential nineteenth-century Jewish authors, Abramovitsh's alter ego - Mendele the Book Peddler - introduces himself and narrates both The Little Man and Fishke the Lame. His cast of characters includes Isaac Abraham as tailor's apprentice, choirboy, and corrupt businessman; Mendele's friend Wine 'n' Candles Alter; and Fishke, who travels through the Ukraine with a caravan of beggars." "Sholem Aleichem's lively stories reintroduce us to Tevye, the gregarious dairyman, as he describes the pleasures of raising his independent-minded daughters. These are followed by short monologues in which Aleichem gives voice to unforgettable characters from Eastern Europe to the Lower East Side. Finally, I.L. Peretz's neo-hasidic tales draw on hasidic tradition in the service of modern literature." "These stories provide an unsentimental look back at Jewish life in Eastern Europe. Although nostalgia occasionally colors their prose, the writers were social critics who understood the shortcomings of shtetl life. For the general reader, these translations breathe new life into the extraordinary worlds of Yiddish literature. The introduction, glossary and biographical essays contemporaneous to each author put those worlds into context, making the book indispensable to students and scholars of Yiddish culture."--Jacket
The wishing-ring : a novel by Mendele Mokher Sefarim( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"In this work Michael Wex renders the time-honored tale with the skill and ease of a modern storyteller and humorist. Abramovitsh's artistry lies not in the plot but in the descriptions and ever-shifting narrative voice. Sometimes the narrator (Mendele the Book Peddler) speaks from within the shtetl and sometimes from outside; and often he interweaves the high rhetorical prose of Hershl himself, reborn by the novel's end as Heinrich Cohen."--Jacket
