/14 Volume The Works of Israel Zangwill Signed Globe 1925
Signed Limited Edition of The Works of Israel Zangwill
Israel Zangwill (1864 - 1926). The son of eastern European immigrants, Zangwill drew on his own experience in Children of the Ghetto (1892), which made him a literary celebrity. The work had considerable impact in the non-Jewish world, giving the English reader a jarring glimpse of the poverty-stricken life of London's Jewish quarter. His The King of Schnorrers (1894) is a picaresque novel about an 18th-century rogue, and Dreamers of the Ghetto (1898) contains essays on famous Jews. He is remembered as one of the earliest English interpreters of Jewish immigrant life. His stories and novels are not merely peopled with Jewish characters but are permeated by a sense of the Jewish life-style and its values. It is in this pervading quality that the uniqueness of Zangwill's contribution to English literature lies.
