Aggadat Arba Kosot (Legend of Four Glasses)
אגדת ארבע כוסות
R. Solomon Pappenheim
J. van Embden
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
, 15,  ff., 200:119 mm., light dampstaining. A very good copy in paper wrappers.
A work influenced by family tragedies and by the Night Thoughts by the English poet Edward Young. Pappenheim's book, which begins with sorrow and ends with exultation and faith, is written in poetic prose. The poet, on the one hand, writes in a classical, rationalist vein from the standpoint of the structure and spirit of the work, and he preaches and believes in reason and morality. On the other hand, he is influenced by the sentimentalism which had begun to affect contemporary literature, which cried out against fate and yearned for nature and night. Aggadat Arba Kosot is one of the foundations of Hebrew lyricism.
