Only yesterday by Shmuel Yosef Agnon( Book )

35 editions published between 1945 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seduced by Zionist slogans, young Isaac Kumer imagines the Land of Israel filled with the financial, social, and erotic opportunities that were denied him, the son of an impoverished shopkeeper, in Poland. Once there, he cannot find the agricultural work he anticipated. Instead Isaac happens upon house-painting jobs as he moves from secular, Zionist Jaffa, where the ideological fervor and sexual freedom are alien to him, to ultra-orthodox, anti-Zionist Jerusalem. While some of his Zionist friends turn capitalist, becoming successful merchants, his own life remains adrift and impoverished in a land torn between idealism and practicality, a place that is at once homeland and diaspora. Eventually he marries a religious woman in Jerusalem, after his worldly girlfriend in Jaffa rejects him
Shira by Shmuel Yosef Agnon( Book )

34 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manfred Herbst, a middle-aged professor at the Hebrew University, is bored. He is bored with his studies, with the petty squabbles of his academic colleagues, and with his endlessly understanding wife, Henrietta. He spends his days--and often his nights--prowling the streets and alleys of Jerusalem searching for Shira, the beguiling nurse he met at a hospital years ago. Against the backdrop of 1930s Jerusalem--a world on the brink of war--Herbst wages his own war against the encroachment of age as he plunges deeper into fantasies sparked by the free-spirited Shira. Shira, the last novel of Hebrew writer and 1966 Nobel Laureate S.Y. Agnon, was unfinished at the time of his death in 1970. Agnon wrote two very different endings for this novel, both of which are included here, along with an afterword by Robert Alter."--Back cover
To this day by Shmuel Yosef Agnon( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To This Day, Nobel prizewinner S.Y. Agnon's last novel (first published in Hebrew in 1952), is also his last to be translated into English. On the surface it is a comically entertaining tale of a young writer - a Galician Jew who has lived in Palestine, returns to Europe on the eve of World War I, and is now stranded in Berlin - who wanders from rented room to rented room in a city with a severe wartime housing shortage. On a deeper level it is a profound commentary on exile, Zionism, divine providence, human egoism, and other typically Agnonian concerns."--Jacket

Betrothed, &, Edo and Enam : two tales by Shmuel Yosef Agnon( Book )

25 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two tales of love. "Betrothed" portrays a teacher whose love for the sea leads him to the town of Jaffa. Though many pursue him, Rechnitz eschews romantic love for his studies until he can no longer resist. "Edo and Enam" is set after World War II in Jerusalem and considers how love evolves throughout the course of a marriage
Present at Sinai : the giving of the Law( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nobel Laureate Shmuel Yosef Agnon brings together what has always been at the heart of Jewish religious consciousness: the Sinai event, the Revelation, as memory and as continuously renewed experience. The sweep of his erudition and his skill as an anthologist make this one of his finest books. The verses of the Torah are elucidated by ancient and medieval commentaries and expanded upon by Agnon's own commentary. The translator, Michael Swirsky, further clarifies the text

The parable and its lesson : a novella by Shmuel Yosef Agnon( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

S.Y. Agnon was the greatest Hebrew writer of the twentieth century, and the only Hebrew writer to receive the Nobel Prize for literature. He devoted the last years of his life to writing a massive cycle of stories about Buczacz, the Galician town (now in Ukraine) in which he grew up. Yet when these stories were collected and published three years after Agnon's death, few took notice. Years passed before the brilliance and audacity of Agnon's late project could be appreciated. The Parable and Its Lesson is one of the major stories from this work. Set shortly after the massa
