About this Item

8vo. 306 pages. In Hebrew. SUBJECT (S) : Hebrew poetry. "[Zeitlin] grew up in Gomel, Vilna, and Warsaw. His early poetic works were lyrical; later, philosophic concepts appeared in his verses, and then followed an attempt to express mystical religious insights within formal rhythmic structures. A philosophic aesthete deeply rooted in Jewish tradition and mysticism, Zeitlin's lyrics are often contemplative liturgic hymns. Well versed in world literature, Zeitlin wrote with equal facility in Hebrew and Yiddish. [In 1926] he became literary editor of the Warsaw Yiddish daily Unzer Ekspres. When [WWII] came, he was saved; in the spring of 1939, Maurice Schwartz invited him to New York for the Yiddish Art Theater's premiere of his play. The war prevented Zeitlin's return to his family, all of whom were killed by the Nazis. As contributor to the New York Yiddish daily Jewish Morning Journal and professor of Hebrew literature at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, Zeitlin profoundly influenced the American Jewish scene after World War II. His Hebrew essays, poems, and lectures during his frequent visits to Israel similarly influenced Hebrew literature. " (EJ, 2007) Has tanned and rubbed dust jacket.
