The Yiddish Fable Collection of Reb Moshe Wallich Edited by Eli Katz Translated by: Eli Katz (288 Pages)Publisher: Wayne State University Press, 1994
Book of Fables is a bilingual edition of Sefer Mesholim, an important collection of fables published in Yiddish in 1695. The work occupies a significant and interesting place in Yiddish literary history as it provides valuable insight regarding the development of Yiddish language and literature, and offers an unusual perspective on the cultural and social life of contemporary European Jewry as well. To place this particular book of traditional tales in context with its time and culture, Katz discusses the early development of Yiddish literature in European publishing. His extensive appendices and critical apparatus document his decisions as a translator and the peculiarities of the early edition, detailing the interesting ways in which Moses Wallich modified the original collection for his audience of a century later. This comprehensive volume presents 115 reproductions of the original pages with handsome, intricate, woodcut illustrations opposite the translation of the text.
