Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0773448004, Hardcover)This is the first English translation and bilingual edition of this Yiddish novella presented with a facing page English translation. Many Yiddish scholars view Dik as a pivotal influence on the development of modern Yiddish literature. By using different typefaces, the translators provide the reader with a restored text of the original work (1865), written in daytshmerish, a Germanized form of Yiddish prevalent at the time, with Shmuel Niger's heavily redacted and abridged version (1954), written in modern standard Yiddish. A Preface and Introduction take into consideration major aspects of literary history and biography, the author's literary technique and issues of translation. This translation is intended for students of Yiddish, for readers of world literature, and for those with an ethnographic interest in Jewish life in nineteenth-century Eastern Europe.
