Abstract

Acknowledges that although Jews most frequently appear in Whitman's writing as merely "biblical, mythical, symbolic or at least idealized figures," Jews themselves have responded to Whitman quite vigorously in their poetry; discusses and examines the "scores of Yiddish poets who have been inspired by Whitman," including Joseph Bovshover, Morris Rosenfeld, A. Eysen, Uri-Tsvi Grinberg, B. Alkvit-Blum, and others.
