Sutzkev­er: Essen­tial Prose by Avrom Sutzkev­er

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.
