About this title


Hayyim Nahman Bialik (1873 1934) is celebrated as one of the leading figures in modern Jewish literature. Although most famous for his Hebrew poems, Bialik was also a master of Hebrew prose. Often expressing a realism and social awareness associated with the Russia of his youth, Bialik's stories showcase his extraordinary gift for lyricism, his deft use of symbolism, and his sense of humor, captured in engaging vignettes of life in the Ukrainian countryside.David Patterson and Ezra Spicehandler have combined their formidable literary talents to produce a new translation of six of Bialik's novellas. Random Harvest: The Novellas of Bialik is written in contemporary English and takes into account the large and important corpus of Bialik criticism that has been published over the years. This stunning new translation not only evokes the subtleties of the original Hebrew, it also reveals nuances which have eluded previous translators of Bialik's prose.The novellas in this collection Random Harvest,” Behind the Fence,” The Shamed Trumpet,” Big Harry,” The Short Friday,” and The Legend of the Three and Four” are each accompanied by a brief introduction. In addition, the book contains a complete glossary, making Random Harvest the most accessible collection of Bialik's stories available.
