            Naydus’s paintings provides to our realizing of the production of a massive literature in a minor language. certainly, this ebook exhibits how the poetics of minor-language literatures innovate concurrently from inside of and with no, and the way these interactions can supply even larger artistic chances than the foremost language literatures with which they have been in dialog. Naydus’s specified physique of labor not just elevated the repertoire of Yiddish poetry but in addition cemented its position at the international literary degree, convincing younger Yiddish writers that this was once a language which could satisfy their inventive aspirations.

            Literary critic Naftoli Vaynig’s long essay on Naydus, written in 1943 within the Vilne Ghetto, makes a extraordinary case for why the poems of this cosmopolitan aesthete, who died so tragically younger, may still function a becoming logo for a tradition threatened with extinction.
