Description/Abstract

During the 1930's, as a young Yiddish poet in New York, Yehuda
Leyb Teller produced some of the memorab1e pre-war poetry of his generation.
Like the introspectivist writers who inspired him, Teller was increasingly aware of politica1 deve10pments in Europe. The
poetic cyc1e entit1ed "Psychoana1ysis," one of Teller's most outstanding
accomp1ishments, fuses real and imaginary dimensions. Two
of the six "Psychoana1ysis" poems confront Sigmund Freud and the
situation of the European Jews.
