About this Item

(FT) 8vo. 278 pages. In Hebrew. Volume two only. SUBJECT(S) : Fiction. OCLC lists 21 copies worldwide. Burla (1886-1969) was born into an old Sephardi family in Jerusalem. He studied at the Jerusalem Teachers' Seminary, later teaching is several different cities, and was a translator for the Turks during WWI. "When he was 18, Burla read the classical modern Hebrew authors for the first time, and discovered that they portrayed only the life of the Ashkenazim of Eastern Europe, while neglecting the world of the Middle Eastern Sephardim. He determined to correct this imbalance by depicting the milieu, language, customs, and thinking of this hitherto neglected community. Beginning with Lunah, a love story set in the Sephardi communities of old Jerusalem, and continuing with his many other works, Burla became the first modern Hebrew writer to deal extensively with the life of Middle Eastern Sephardim. " (Leviant, EJ) Ex library. Pages tanned, covers wrinkled by moisture, hinges repaired, good- condition. (HebLit-2-1) Heblit1, , mx3, heb1, sef4. Bookseller Inventory # 24361
