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 in tensity or the originality of Rosenfeld s Inthe 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 ex pressing himself in English almost as trippingly as in Yiddish. It is only in 1910 that this alien im migrant 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-L ieder, with a preface by Schalom A leichem, the Yiddish Mark Twain. And now he has already mastered English sufficiently to write in the language if not of Shakespeare of Longj fellow. There are those who, in the spirit of Dr Johnson, might wish that this feat were not only difficult but impossible.
