A quarter of a century after Isaac Bashevis Singer was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature it is time to take stock of his achievement. Penetrating studies of his fictional and autobiographical works by leading scholars in the field reveal that for all the acclaim he has received on the basis of the English versions of his works, no adequate evaluation of Bashevis's significance can be made without careful examination of the original Yiddish texts. Critical readings assess inter alia his themes and motifs, the impact of Kabbalah on his work, reflections of society in his original Polish homeland as well as his place within the context of contemporary Jewish American letters and the canon of modern Yiddish and Hebrew writing.Table of ContentsContributors include: Monika Adamczyk-Garbowska; Murray Baumgarten; Nathan Cohen; Hugh Denman; John Guzlowski; David Mesher; Anita Norich; Leonard Prager; Bilhah Rubinstein; Thomas S.
