Isaac Bashevis Singer-"The Penitent"-1983-Farrar Straus-5" X 8"-170 pages-hardcover book-with jacket-Signed By Author.Isaac Bashevis Singer (Yiddish: ) (November 21, 1902 (see notes below) July 24, 1991) was a Nobel Prize-winning Polish-born American author and one of the leading figures in the Yiddish literary movement.Some say that Singer's work is indebted to the great writers of Yiddish tradition such as Sholem Aleichem, and he himself considered his older brother his greatest artistic example. But actually he was more influenced by Knut Hamsun, whom he read (and translated) in his youth, and whose subjective approach he transferred to his own world, which, contrary to Hamsun's, was not only shaped by the ego of its characters, but by the moral commitments of the Jewish traditions he grew up with and which his father embodies in the stories about his youth. This led to the dichotomy between the life his heroes led and the life they feel they should lead - which gives his art a modernity his predecessors do not have. His themes of witchcraft, mystery and legend draw on traditional sources, but they are contrasted with a modern and ironic consciousness. They are also concerned with the bizarre and the grotesque.The book has been autographed on the title page by isaac Bashevis Singer......BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION............
