By the Waters of Manhattan

Charles Reznikoff (Author) Phillip Lopate (Foreword by)
Available

Description

The lives of a Jewish family at the turn of the century -- from Czarist Russia to Brownsville, Brooklyn. The son of the family, Ezekiel, becomes a young poet, 'born in exile'. Like Walt Whitman, Hart Crane, and Henry Roth, Reznikoff's subject is as much Brooklyn and the great island of Manhattan, as its people, struggling for their place in a new world.

About the Author

Charles Reznikoff, the son of Russian garment workers, was a blood-and-bone New Yorker; a collector of images and stories who walked the city from the Bronx to the Battery and breathed its soul into a lifetime of poetry.

Phillip Lopate is a professor at Columbia University, where he directs the graduate nonfiction program.
