About this Item

(FT) 16mo. 94 pages. Frontispiece. In Hebrew. Sixth edition. SUBJECT(S) : Poetry. OCLC lists 11 copies worldwide. Lamdan (1899-1954) was a Ukrainian-born poet. He moved to Israel in 1920, after hard years during WWI, and joining, and then breaking with, the Russian Communist revolution. In Israel he spent a few years as a halutz, and then devoted himself to writing. "Lamdan's magnum opus, Massadah (1927) , an epic poem in blank verse of six cantos, comprising 35 poems, established his reputation. The poem reflects the spirit of the young pioneers of the 1920s who had left behind them not only the memory of the brutal senseless murders of defenseless Jews, but also their shattered illusions about the possibility of establishing a free, revolutionary society in Eastern Europe. Massadah, the last fortress which continued to hold out against the Romans even after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 C. E. , in Lamdan's poem symbolizes Ere? Israel, the last stronghold of the destroyed Eastern European Jewish communities. " (EJ, 2007) Ex library. Boards worn, tears on spine, moisture stain on title page, good- condition. (HebLit-3-22).
