In the years between 1929 and 1939, when Itzik Manger wrote most of the poetry and fiction that made him famous, his name among Yiddish readers was a household word. Called the Shelley of Yiddish, he was characterized as being drunk with talent. This anthology of Manger's work seeks to display the full range of his genius in poetry, fiction and criticism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Itzik Manger was one of the handful of extraordinary Yiddish poets of the 20th century. There is a quality of hallucinatory intensity in Manger, which is very difficult to duplicate."-Harold Bloom, author of Genius: A Mosaic of 100 Exemplary Creative Minds


"Manger's deceptively folkish style, which mixes fantasy and autobiography, Biblical plots and a fin-de-siecle East European setting, pathos and parody, angels' wings and social protest, the lyric and dramatic, has been brilliantly rendered into English by Leonard Wolf."-Ruth R. Wisse
