The Golem: A New Translation of the Classic Play and Selected Short Stories

The Golem: A New Translation of the Classic Play and Selected Short StoriesIn this collection of fictional writings, the Golem of Jewish folklore is both hero and villain.BRBRThe Golem, a creature made of clay and brought to life by Rabbi Leyb of Prague in the sixteenth century, has provided an enticing subject for fiction writers since the legend began. In some works, Rabbi Leyb gives birth to the Golem to help the Jews with the overbearing burden of their work. In others, the Golem is the protector of the Jews, keeping watch during the nights before Passover to make sure that a Gentile does not plant evidence for a blood libel in a Jewish home. But the powerful Golem can also lose control and have to be destroyed. Joachim Neugroschel has brought together some of the best work featuring the Golem, including H. Leivicks masterful blank verse play; Yudl Rosenbergs pamphlet full of Golem tales; and stories by S. Bastomski, Dovid Frishman, and Y. L. Peretz, which he translates fluidly from the Yiddish. Обо всём этом и не только в книге The Golem: A New Translation of the Classic Play and Selected Short Stories
