Being Out of Place: The Writing of Sholem Aleichem and Isaac Bashevis Singer

By Jeremy Dauber

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, June 2012

Sholem Aleichem and Isaac Bashevis Singer, two of the great Yiddish authors of the twentieth century were defined by their dislocation from the language and cultural milieu they wrote of. Aleichem served as an interpreter and mirror of that former place, while Singer served as its elegist, mourning the lost home.
