Yiddish Genesis – Richard Fein – 2012

Yiddish Genesis
by Richard Fein

Yiddish Genesis is a chronological gathering of personal essays, written between 1968 and 2010, which explores Fein’s relationship to Yiddish and the Book of Genesis. The book may be seen as informal forays into his obsessions with this material, these obsessions going back to his childhood. Fein has entered this material as a way of enabling him to claim his obsessions, or them to claim him–not so different from the way his poetry works.
