Roskies, David G.

For all that Sholem Aleichem seemed to have always belonged in the public domain, the translation, editing and posthumous publishing of his works became something of a family monopoly, so that his prodigious output appeared in truncated form and bore an official stamp that we are only now beginning to unfix. If the pace and scope of recent (re)translations of his work into Hebrew and English are any indication, the new Sholem Aleichem oeuvre that emerges may bear little resemblance to that which was commonly known before.
