« "Because They Say What You Own Defines You" [by Kate Angus] | Main | It's Ella (1917- 1996) 's Birthday »

Merle - I've loved your posts! Thanks!

Likewise! I'm hoping Merle will agree to come back.

Nice going. I wish you'd tell us more about Mikhl Likht. Do you know Isaac Rosenfeld's translation of "Prufrock" into Yiddish, and back?

Dear Merle,

This 'rambling' is new for me. I have read your poems and Yiddishland and now I get to read you using a more intimate cadence, a seemingly spontaneous talking-writing. I like it.


Thanks so much, y'all!!!
And Stacey, of course I'll come back (whenever it makes sense) (or maybe I can just send you occasional things, as the inspiration strikes).
And David, thanks! And re: that translation: hmmmm, I always thought it was Saul Bellow who did the Prufrock thing (which, I thought, was too mocking of Yiddish!)... I'll have to look up the Rosenfeld one.)
I'm glad Evan likes my talking-writing (and I like that description of it!).
Well -- see you around the cyberspace cafe...
and thanks again to Stacey for giving me this opportunity!!
