About this Item

Hardcover, 8vo, 192 pages. In Hebrew; Hebrew text. SUBJECT (S) : Hebrew fiction, Modern. Short stories. OCLC lists 2 copies worldwide (London, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek) . Gordon (1831-1892) was a "Hebrew poet, writer, critic, and allegorist. One of the outstanding poets of the 19th century, Gordon was also a witty, incisive journalist who courageously militated against the ills in Jewish society. He advocated social and religious reform and fiercely denounced the rigidness of its leaders, especially the rabbis. His wrath was vented most directly in his poetry and in satirical feuilletons. Probably the severest critic of his time and a fiery exponent of the Haskalah, Gordon is rightly considered one of its key spokesmen. He embodied an age which ended with him, but at the same time he paved the way for such poets as Hayyim Nahman Bialik, Saul Tchernichowsky, and others whom he had influenced. Bialik, his great admirer and successor as the "poet laureate" of Hebrew literature, called him "the mighty hammer of the Hebrew language" (Ben-Yishai in EJ, 2007) . From the books of Moshe Spivack, as written on title page in hebrew. Bumped corners. Some stained pages. Hinge repair. Otherwise, good condition. (Art-11-17). Bookseller Inventory # 25735
