Hebrew Poetry of Hayyim Nahman Bialik (1873-1934) and a Modern Jewish Theology
|Author: ||Breslauer, S.|
A study of the writings of Hayyim Nahman Bialik, whose poetic creativity, linguistic sensitivity, and skills as a compiler of tradition and translator into Hebrew fashioned the pillars of the Hebrew revival. His writings provide the key to modern Jewish thinking. This work focuses on Bialik as a thinker who adumbrates the images and responses typical of many modern Jews.
". . . has added significantly to our understanding of the central place occupied by Hayyim Nahman Bialik. . . . Drawing upon previously-published translations, as well as his own, Breslauer shows us -- even in translation -- the power of Bialik's poetry and the craft of his art and artistry. . . . For anyone else, Jew and non-Jew alike, interested in a serious and fascinatingly relevant study of Judaism, the Jewish people, and modernity, Hayyim Bialik is well worth pursuing. " - Dr Steven L.
