This course will introduce students to the development of Yiddish literature during the 19th and 20th century and its connections to Eastern European Yiddish folklore. We will get acquainted with the substance of Yiddish folklore, explore the channels through which it entered modern Yiddish literature, and examine how folklore inspired Yiddish fiction, drama, and poetry. We will look at how secular Yiddish writers emerged from traditional Jewish society and how their writings portray its transformation. We will also peek into similar developments in other forms of art, e.g., painting and music. Among the writers whose works will be read are Sholem Aleichem, Sh. Ansky, Y.L. Perets, Itsik Manger, M.L. Halpern, Anna Margolin, and I.B. Singer. Course requirements include weekly reading assignments, active classroom participation, one short oral presentation by each student, and three essays of three-five pages. There are no prerequisites for taking this course, and knowledge of Yiddish is not expected.
