Letter from a Young Poet
by Hyam Plutzik and Daniel Halpern


Overview -
Written on the eve of America's entry into World War II, this remarkable Letter From a Young Poet discloses a young Jewish American man's spiritual and literary odyssey through rural Connecticut and urban Brooklyn during the turbulent 1930s. In a finely wrought first-person narrative, young Plutzik tells his mentor, what it means for a poet to live an authentic life in the modern world. Like Joyce and Rilke before him, Plutzik ultimately strikes out on a path that can be blessed both by his literary muses and by his ancestral voices. Letter From a Young Poet can be described as an early example of Holocaust literature for the way Plutzik challenges the growing menace of Nazism that he views looming from afar.
