Shirley Kumove:
More Words, More Arrows: A Further Collection of Yiddish Folk Sayings - used book

ISBN: 0814327400

ID: 3515860

Shirley Kumove's earlier book, Words Like Arrows, delighted readers with its collection of Yiddish folk sayings. More Words, More Arrows offers more adages, aphorisms, and pithy observations on people and events. It draws on the rich folk wisdom of Eastern Europe and the immigrant Jewish communities of North America and was assembled from firsthand contact with Yiddish speakers and from published sources not available in English. Kumove has undertaken the task of collecting, cataloguing, and interpreting the vast storehouse of Yiddish folk sayings, which continues to grow as new oral and written sources become available. For this book, some 2,400 entries were culled from her collection of more than 7,000 sayings and are arranged in a hundred categories-focusing on such character traits as authority, courage, and greed-in order to allow them to stand without unnecessary explication. Introductory material provides social and historical context as well as commentary on aspects of translation. These sayings, ditties, rhymes, and word plays cover the full range of Yiddish folk sayings, from comic to serious. Kumove has even retained vulgarities as legitimate expressions that reflect the sensibilities of a particular time and place. The sayings are presented in bilingual format, with the original Yiddish transliterated into Roman letters and then translated into English. In some cases, both literal and interpretative tra fairy tales,folklore,folklore and mythology,judaism,literature and fiction,mythology and folk tales,politics and social sciences,reference,religion and spirituality,science and math Judaism, Wayne State University Press
