by Elie Wiesel
Translated by Mary Schulman
Edited by Mary Schulman, Joan Braman, and David Weintraub
This collection brings together in English the work of Peretz Markish, one of the most gifted and remarkable Jewish poets of the Soviet Union. Suffused with a consciousness of suffering, homelessness, and inevitably the Holocaust, these modernist poems are meditative, elegiac, and prophetic in tone, and touch on the themes of loss, loneliness, displacement, war, and the yearning for renewal. Inextricably bound up with Markish's Eastern European Jewish identity, they are also intensely personal, modern, and universal.
This is the first publication of his poetry in English, and includes both the English translation and the original Yiddish text.
"A spectacular example of Yiddish resilience."
