About the Author

Sholom Aleichem (Hebrew greeting meaning "Peace be unto you!") was born near Pereyaslav, Ukraine, and settled in the United States two years before his death. The most popular and beloved of all Yiddish writers, he wrote with humor and tenderness about the Yiddish-speaking Jews of Eastern Europe näytä lisää and won the title "the Jewish Mark Twain". One of his creations, Tevye the Dairyman, has become world famous, thanks to the highly successful Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof, which is based on Sholom Aleichem's Tevye stories. Although he also wrote plays and novels, it is for his short stories and his humorous monologues that Sholom Aleichem is best remembered. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Sholem Aleichem's pseudonym, meaning "peace be with you," is a common greeting in Yiddish and Hebrew. He's often referred to as the "Jewish Mark Twain" because of the two authors' similar writing styles (and their use of pen names). When Mark Twain heard of this, he reportedly said, "Please tell him that I am the American Sholem Aleichem." Sholem Aleichem and his wife had six children; the American writer Bel Kaufman is their granddaughter.

„ Bone elektitaj eltiraĵoj. Aparta originaleco. IIi elvekas ridon, simpation aŭ pripensadon. La traduko estas tute kontentiga. ”
— 1929, Georges Stroele, Esperanto, paĝo 44
„ Ŝalom-Aleksem estas popola humoristo kiu ridas pri siaj samgentanoj ne mokeme sed helpeme, tiel ke li estas legata en ĉiu juda domo.
Perec estas moralisto kies celo estas prezenti al la mondo la veran judan karakteron, kiun multaj homoj ne povas aŭ ne volas kompreni. La lerta tradukisto prezentas la historietojn el popola juda lingvo en flua Esperanta stilo. ”
— 1923, Historio de Esperanto I, paĝo 334

In Tevye the Dairyman and The Railroad Stories, Sholem Aleichem presents character studies that are both intense and light-hearted, as well as heartwarming. I have no background in Yiddish but the new translation by Hillel Halkin flows well.

Tevye is a traveling salesman, going on regular routes to sell his dairy products. His wife and seven daughters are poor of purse but rich in spirit. Throughout the short stories, which were written over the course of a few decades, Tevye's daughters suffer tragedies and misfortunes, and become married. Despite his "woe is me" attitude, Tevye uses ironic and sarcastic humor in his everyday interactions with his family, people he meets during his travels, and in his prayers.

The second collection of stories in the book, The Railroad Stories, are recollections from various poor people in a railcar telling about life in their particular shtetl. There are a few humorous stories, but it is overshadowed by Tevye's massive personality.

Reason read: ROOT, Alpha

This is a collection of short stories by Yiddish author (pen name) that are the bases for the play and movie Fiddler on The Roof. A favorite of mine. It was good to read the story and sometimes the music would play through my head or a line would pop. There are more stories than what are in the movie. I like the musical better because I love the songs.

I just finished The Tevye Stories and Others by Sholom Aleichem. First off it is a great book and a true classic. The stories in the book were the kernel behind the Broadway show "Fiddler on the Roof." The foil for many of the stories is Tevye, a luckless dairyman. In the first story, The Bubble, Tevye is conned into investing what little savings he has with a self-promoting swindler, who asks him to imagine life being wealthy. This gives rise to the famous song from the show, "If I Were a Rich Man." Some of the other stories similarly relate to scenes or songs from the show.

The setting for both the stories and the show is the collapse of Czarist Russia and the even swifter implosion of Russian Jewish life. At one time this was the capital of world Jewry. During the period roughly from the early 1880's on, millions of Russian Jews escaped, most to New York City and some to Palestine. This book attempts to detail the world before and during the early days of the destruction of a great culture. This was a world inhabited by "rebbes" and other Jewish notables. The combination of ocean transit and the inhabitants' brutality pushed out first the brightest and most motivated, and then with the particularly shocking pogroms many more.

Returning to the book, the short stories are almost all heartbreaking. There are few happy endings. This was true of the book, the Broadway show and ultimately Jewish life in Europe.
