Other Titles: Fuftsik lider. Avrom Reyzn; 1876 1953, was a "Yiddish poet, short-story writer, playwright, and editor. Born in Koidanovo, Russia (now Dzyarzhynsk, Belarus) , Reisen was the son of the Hebrew and Yiddish poet Kalman Reisen (1848 1921) and the brother of the poet, short-story writer, and translator Sarah (Sore) Reisen (1884 1974) and the celebrated philologist Zalman Rejzen (1887 1941) . While he was still a teenager, his talent was recognized by Shalom Aleichem and I. L. Peretz , who arranged for the publication of his earliest poems. After some years in Minsk, Warsaw, Cracow, and Berlin, he settled permanently in New York in 1914. Influenced by Heinrich Heine , whom he translated into Yiddish, he was one of the first Yiddish poets to make use of folksong material. His poetry, though mostly written in conventional quatrains, is suffused by a refined sensibility that adumbrates the writing of Di Yunge . In contrast to the verse of the "sweatshop" generation, such as Morris Vinchevsky or Morris Rosenfeld , his work is characterized by a certain understated Romanticism and melancholy irony. Reisen shared the preoccupation with poverty and social problems manifested by his predecessors, but he entirely eschews their propagandistic rhetoric. Nonetheless, while most of his poetry is softly lyrical, a proportion has sufficiently social-critical implications to have been sung at clandestine workers' meetings in the forests. Many of his poems were set to music and became a standard part of Yiddish folk culture (Denman, EJ, 2011) . Wear and staining to covers, spine bumped . All original spine and binding. Good condition.
