Jewish Values: Agnon's Alef Bet
Place of Publication:
Number of Pages:
Poems by Nobel Laureate Agnon, a poem for each letter of the alphabet, have been translated from the Hebrew. There is not a strict correspondence between letter and poem as there is in the originals. The relationship here is between letter and a word which is identical or similar in sound but not necessarily in meaning. The original Hebrew is printed in the back of the book. Learned and witty writing is combined with clever illustrations.
