HOW THE WISE MEN GOT TO CHELM: The Life and Times of a Yiddish Folk Tradition

The first in-depth study of Chelm literature--the best-known folktale tradition of the Jews of Eastern Europe--and its relationship to its literary precursors. The author shows how they have functioned for over three hundred years as models of society, somewhere between utopia and dystopia, enabling writers to highlight a variety of societal problems.
