“Rhymed couplet poems are not common in Yiddish poetry, but most of the greats wrote at least a few of them. I like to think that they wrote them when they were in a particularly playful and lyric mood, even though some of the poems have quite serious themes . . . ” —from Dr. Zumoff’s Introduction. Work by 16 classic Yiddish poets.
