Jacob Isaac Segal: A Montreal Yiddish Poet and His Milieu

By Pierre Anctil, full professor, Faculty of Arts, uOttawa 

On Monday, January 15, 2018, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

at Library and Archives Canada, 395, Wellington Street, Ottawa

Born in the Ukraine in 1896, and settling in Montreal in 1910, Segal became one of the first Yiddish writers in Canada. His poetry, infused with lyricism and mysticism, along with the numerous essays and articles he penned, embodied both a rich literary tradition and the modernism of his day. 

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
