New Bilingual Book of Dybbuk Parodies

Tsiterboym Books announces the publication of Parodies of An-sky’s “The
Dybbuk,” which includes four parodies of the play, translated with notes by
Fernando Peñalosa. The original text and the translation are on facing
pages. Three are in Yiddish: “Der dibek”/“The Dybbuk”, a poem by Yoysef
Tunkel; Mitn koyekh fun dibek/With the Dybbuk’s Power, a one-act play by
Menakhem Kipnis and Moyshe Bunem Yustman; and “Der dibek afn hoyf”/“The
Dybbuk in the Courtyard,” a narrative spoof by Menakhem Kipnis. The other
parody is in Hebrew: Hadibbuk behakumkum/The Dybbuk at the Kumkum, by
Avigdor Hameiri. All the parodies poke good-natured criticism at the play,
the characters, and well known theatre persons and political figures from
life in interwar Eastern Europe and Mandate Palestine. 80 pp., illustrated.
Tsiterboym Press, 2012. Available at Amazon.com. $10.00
