Isaac Bashevis Singer

Isaac Bashevis Singer

Isaac Bashevis Singer is among the most important Jewish writers of the Twentieth Century, and is a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for literature (1978). His stories speak to Jew and non-Jew alike. Even today, readers find his writing powerful and provocative, filled with ideas and passions that resonate as freshly as when he first wrote them.A prolific writer, the main theme of Singer's works is the clash between tradition and renewal--preservation versus regeneration--that serves as a backdrop to stories delving deeply into the grip of human passions that unleash the destructive, yet constructive, force of the emotions. Singer's profound talent allowed him to manage these weighty topics with a light, often comedic, touch.
