Description :

8vo. 583 pages. In Hebrew. English title: Studies in the literatures and languages of the Jews, short stories and translations from Yiddish poetry. SUBJECT (S) : Jewish literature - history and criticism; Yiddish literature - translations in Hebrew. Samuel Niger was the pseudonym of Samuel Charney (1883-1955) . A Zionist influenced by Adah Ha-Am and a Russian socialist revolutionary, he joined the Zionist-Socialist Workers Party, and was repeatedly arrested and tortured by Russian authorities. Though his first literary efforts were in Russian and Hebrew, his mature work was written mostly in Yiddish. After being imprisoned by Polish legionaires in 1919, Niger left for the United States. In New York, he worked for Der Tog, a Yiddish daily; beginning in 1920, he worked for the paper for 35 years, "becoming the most revered and feared Yiddish critic of his generation. " Outside of strictly literary work, Niger worked with the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research from its inception, a and helped found the Congress for Jewish Culture. (Liptzin, EJ) "Born in Chudnov, Volhynia (Russia) , Ribalow (1895-1953) received a yeshivah education and also studied at the University of Moscow; he emigrated to the United States in 1921. Two years later he was appointed editor of the Hebrew weekly Hadoar. For 30 years he wrote his weekly editorials under his pseudonym, M. Shoshani, and hundreds of essays which appeared in various periodicals and, eventually, were collected in five volumes. As an essayist he concentrated on literary criticism, especially of Hebrew poetry. Though his love for Hebrew sometimes led him to hyperbolic evaluations of Hebrew writers, he was a perceptive critic. Many Hebrew authors in the U. S. Made their debut under his guidance. Ribalow was a leader of Histadrut, an organization which propagates Hebrew culture in the United States. With Israel's President Izhak Ben-Zvi, he was co-president of the World Hebrew Union.
