Emma Lazarus: Poet of the Jewish People: A Selection of Poetry and Prose
Emma Lazarus (au); Emma Klein (in)
‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!’ These lines, engraved on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, were written by the 19th-century American Jewish poet Emma Lazarus. She was encouraged by her parents to become a writer, and her poetry and translations of French and German classics were published, and admired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, among others. In her mature work, perhaps influenced by the brutal pogroms of Jews in Russia, she wrote a great deal about Jewishness and the struggle of Jews to survive in anti-Semitic societies. An anthology in the Visionary Women series.
