The Processing of Fish and Fowl in Elye Bokher’s ‘Ha-mavdil Song’
Lecture by Jerold C. Frakes
In his Old Yiddish poem, ‘Ha-mavdil Song,’ Elye Bokher uses fish and fowl as vehicles of his critique of an intellectual with whom he was engaging in a polemic. This talk will illustrate the nuts-and-bolts philological processing of the ‘evidence’ (textual, lexicographical, cultural, historical) to try to arrive at some plausible interpretation of this early 16th century Old Yiddish text from Venice.
