In this course taught entirely in Yiddish, we will read and discuss texts and biographies of Yiddish Modernists in Eastern Europe of the 1920-1930s such as Dovid Bergelson, Dovid Hofshteyn, Perets Markish, Leyb Kvitko, Kalmen Zingman, Der Nister, and Khane Levin. Grammar to be repeated will be drawn from the texts. You will learn new literary terms and have an understanding of the main processes and movements in the development of Yiddish Modernism.
