This is a Jewish Poetry Journal. As poet and translator, Richard Fein is haunted by the world of Yiddish culture he experienced as a child and the power of its poets to conjure up a world that he has repressed and feared. Leaving behind his childhood in Brooklyn, Fein entered into the world of English academics where he became a noted scholar on the works of Robert Lowell. But, in middle age, Yiddish became his passion, kindling his own poetry and exploration of the culture of his childhood.
