Yiddish Poets & Writers

Yiddish Literature

This is the start of another short series, Yiddish Poets & Writers, which will bring to the attention of modern readers the important Jewish poets and writers of the early 20th century. I will start with the important Montreal Yiddish poets and writers and then plan to write about the New York Yiddish poets and writers—Montreal and New York City being important centres of Yiddishkayt. I might also include Yiddish poets and writers in Israel, who played a prominent role in the nation’s culture and literature. I begin here with J.I. Segal.
