Yitskhok Leybush Peretz, “A Man for all Seasons” (in Yiddish)
I.L. Peretz was one of the most important figures in the development of modern Yiddish culture. His role in modern Yiddish literature, theatre, journalism, and modern Jewish politics placed him at the centre of Jewish life in Eastern Europe and abroad. As a modernist he experimented with various literary styles. A reading of a variety of his works will provide a small insight into the breadth of his work, his popularity, and its relevance for our time.
This talk will be presented in Yiddish with no translation.
