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. He also wrote one love story: The Song of Songs -- now published for the first time in book form. With its echoes of its biblical ancestor, this is the most beautiful love story in Yiddish literature. The story is set in a 19th-century European shtetl. Told in four parts which are gorgeously written & translated, framed by the periodic cycle of the natural world, & decorated with a dozen specially commissioned paintings, this edition of The Song of Songs brings to compassionate life two of the most memorable star-crossed lovers in modern literature.
