Original Cloth. 8vo. 414 pages. 24 cm. First edition. In Yiddish. The Yeshiva. "The monumental, two-volume novel Tsemakh Atlas (1967–1968; translated as The Yeshiva) is Grade's richest work about the Musar world and its attempt to shape the ethical personality. Through the memorable character of Tsemakh Atlas, a tortured teacher of Musar who is trapped between its self-abnegating demands, the enticements of the secular world, and his own elemental desires, readers enter a universe of high religious ideals, intellectual and moral debate, and intense spiritual struggle. " - YIVO Encyclopedia. "Grade was one of the rare interpreters of yeshivah life in modern Yiddish literature, recreating the daily life of the yeshivah student with photographic accuracy, objectivity, and affection, and illustrating it with such scenes as rabbis discussing talmudic law, as in the novel Tsemakh Atlas" - EJ 2008.
