Título: The Rise of David Levinsky
Editorial: Standard Publications, Incorporated
Condición del libro: Very Good
One of Abraham Cahan's most famous works brings late 19th century Russia to life in this fictional autobiography. David Levinsky tells the story of a young man who grows up in poverty after the death of his father, becomes a Talmudic scholar, and, after the loss of his mother, begins to consider emigration to America. In 1980 this riveting story was adapted into a musical.From the Inside Flap:
The Rise of David Levinsky, written by the legendary founder and editor of the "Jewish Daily Forward, is an early Jewish-American classic. According to the scholar Sam B. Girgus, "The novel is more than an important literary work and cultural document. It forms part of the traditional ritual of renewal of the American Way."
First published in 1917, Abraham Cahan's realistic novel tells the story of a young talmudic scholar who emigrates from a small town in Russia to the melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York City. As the Jewish "greenhorn" rises from the depths of poverty to become a millionaire garment merchant, he discovers the unbearably high price of assimilation.
