Songs of a Jew free pdf Excerpt from Songs of a Jew Every ghetto is now a nest of singing-birds. But the Yiddish poet has so far made his appearance in English literature only by way of a version of Morris Rosenfeld's Songs from the Ghetto. If there is nothing in the present volume that reaches the intensity or the originality of Rosenfeld's In the Sweat Shop - that palpitating protest against mechanical drudgery which leaves Hood's Song of the Shirt as far behind as the sewing-machine leaves the needle - Mr Raskin has yet the unique distinction of expressing himself in English almost as trippingly as in Yiddish. It is only in 1910 that this "alien immigrant" published in his adopted town of Leeds - where he seems to have become a Member of the Royal Sanitary Institute (!) - a Yiddish collection entitled Ghetto-Lieder, with a preface by "Schalom Aleichem," the Yiddish Mark Twain. And now he has already mastered English sufficiently to write in the language - if not of Shakespeare - of Longfellow. There are those who, in the spirit of Dr Johnson, might wish that this feat were not only difficult but impossible.
