Sing, stranger : a century of American Yiddish poetry : a historical anthology( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sing, Stranger is a comprehensive historical anthology of a century of American poetry written in Yiddish and now translated into English. Here are the proletarian or "sweatshop" poets, sympathizing with socialist anarchists, who were popular with Yiddish audiences at the end of the nineteenth century; the lyrical moods and ironies of the "Young Generation" at the beginning of the twentieth century; the sophisticated poetry of the modern world seen through the individualistic prism of the "Introspectivists" after World War I; the poetry of women poets; samples of epic poetry; and, finally, the poetry of the Holocaust and the decline of the Yiddish language. This anthology reveals both an amazing achievement of Jewish creative work and an important body of American poetry, written in a minority language, practically unknown to most readers. The travails, joys, and intimate experiences of the individual in the big metropolis are intertwined with representations of American realities: architecture and alienation in the big city, the migration of the blacks, trade unions and underworld, the immigrant experience in this immense and strange land, and the destinies of Jewish history."--Jacket
