A Bridge of Longing: The Lost Art of Yiddish Storytelling

by

Roskies shows how Yiddish storytelling became a politics of rescue for generations of displaced Jewish artists, embodying their hopes and fears in the languages of tradition. Its protagonists are modern writers who returned to storytelling in the hope of harnessing the folk tradition, and who created copies that are better than the original.
