Jacob Isaac Segal

A Montreal Yiddish Poet and His Milieu

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Pierre Anctil

Celebrated Montréal writer Jacob Isaac Segal (1896–1954) paved the way for a major literary movement in the North American Jewish diaspora. In tracing the poet’s literary trajectory, this book reflects the history of Jewish immigrants to North America at the beginning of the 20th century. This admirably written, sweeping, yet subtle work will appeal both to scholars and to a broader audience. The original French version was awarded the prestigious 2014 Canada Prize in the Humanities by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
