The Yiddish Nursery Rhyme.
Kimmel, Eric A.
Following a brief discussion of the history of Yiddish children's literature, which is said to have come into existence as a separate literary form at the beginning of the twentieth century and to have ended in 1939, this paper presents 12 Yiddish nursery rhymes in Yiddish and in English translations. The rhymes are divided into four categories: folk and street songs, literary poems, message poems, and visionary poems. Notes are included that explain various aspects of the language and content of many of the rhymes. (GT)
