More than 60 years after his death, Chaim Nachman Bialik is inevitably called the finest and most influential modern Hebrew poet. Hailed as the poet laureate of Jewish nationalism, he was seen as the poet of hope and revival in an age that witnessed the Russian Pale of Settlement, pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and the rise of Zionism. Bialik's legacy is poetry that inspires, astonishes, and delights, and David Aberbach, the distinguished Hebrew scholar, has produced translations of a high order to stand beside the author's original Hebrew.
