Abstract

In the centre of this article is a female poet rooted in a long tradition of Yiddish literature. Since these roots are essential for understanding her work, I will give a short introduction to Yiddish language and literature, followed by a biographical sketch of the life of Malka Lee. The aim of the research and the biography is to consider the thematically selected poems² and interpret them as the poetic reflections of a woman of the twentieth century.
