About this Item

(FT) 8vo. 128 pages. In Hebrew. SUBJECT(S) : Meir, 2nd cent. -- drama; Berubiah, 2nd cent. -- drama. Cahan (1881-1960) was a Hebrew poet and Zionist. Devoted to the revival of the Hebrew language and culture, he coined the term "New Hebrew, " referring to a desired, beautiful, post-Diaspora culture. For him the Jewish Diaspora was everything hated and ugly. "Cahan's poetry revolves around two axes - messianism and the fusion of three major principles: beauty, holiness, and happiness. The messianic motif runs through most of his lyrical epics, verse dramas, and dramatized legends. It goes hand in hand with his identification of the Judaic-prophetic sanctity of life and the yearning for enlightened beauty and universal humanism, or with the identification of morality and the quest for happiness. " (EJ, 2007) Spine faded, otherwise very good condition. (HebLit-6-4) HebLit1, mx3, . Heb1, rab6. Bookseller Inventory # 24431
