By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on February 8, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Sheila Jelen writing in JBooks points out some of the special qualities of this translation.
" David Aberbach presents several of Bialik's classic epic and lyrical poems, as well as a surprising amount of his lesser-known folk poems in a beautiful bilingual edition. The strength of the collection resides in Aberbach's introduction and his commentary on the poems-both of which give a wonderful overview of Bialik's career and his poetic work in the context of Russian-Jewish history. Aberbach's facility, as a scholar of Modern Hebrew letters, is evident in his concise timeline of Bialik's career, as well as in his readable glosses on Bialik's choice of particular forms and particular themes in individual works and in his corpus as a whole."
Aberbach's translations read well, but there is no substitute for the the special beauty of the Hebrew. This excellent bilingual edition gives those who know something of both languages the opportunity to test and compare the original with this fine translation.
