Song of Songs
Sholom Aleichem (au); Devis Grebu (il); Curt Leviant (tr)
Sholom Aleichem was called “The Yiddish Mark Twain” long before his stories about Tevye the milkman were transmuted into Fiddler on the Roof -- but he wrote only one love story: “The Song of Songs”, which is considered the most beautiful love story in Yiddish lit. This story of 19th-cent. shtetl Europe is narrated by Shimek, whose older brother drowned, leaving an orphaned daughter. This baby niece -- Buzie -- who is raised as Shimek’s sister, becomes at first an audience for his magical tales; then his traveling companion; and, at last, the love of his life. This love is finally shattered on a fine point of Jewish tradition: Though an uncle may marry his niece, Shimek and Buzie have been raised as brother and sister. Decorated with a dozen paintings.
