Translator: Zackary Sholem Berger
Fiction. Poetry. Jewish Studies. Translated by Zackary Sholem Berger. Introduction by Heather Valencia. Through Zackary Sholem Berger’s translations, SUTZKEVER ESSENTIAL PROSE brings to light for English readers the largely unknown prose of a seminal Yiddish poet. In these works, Avrom Sutzkever blurs the lines between fiction, memoir, and poetry; between real and imagined; between memory and metaphor. He offers haunting scenes drawn from a vast imagination and from the unique life he lived–his youth in Siberia and Vilna, his trauma as a partisan and a survivor, and his post-war life as a Yiddish poet in Israel.
