Simultaneously with the publication of these 'Ghetto Comedies' a fresh edition of my 'Ghetto Tragedies' is issued, with the original title restored. In the old definition a comedy could be distinguished from a tragedy by its happy ending. Dante's Hell and Purgatory could thus appertain to a 'comedy.' This is a crude conception of the distinction between Tragedy and Comedy, which I have ventured to disregard, particularly in the last of these otherwise unassuming stories.

Bohlman, "Jews and Hungarians in Modern Hungarian Musical Culture," by Judit Frigyesi, "New Directions in the Music of the Sephardic Jews," by Edwin Seroussi, "The Eretz Israeli Song and the Jewish National Fund," by Natan Shahar, "Alexander U.

A biography of Israel Zangwill (1864-1926), the author of "Children of the Ghetto" and "Dreamers of the Ghetto." Zangwill was the originator of the "melting pot" view of American society, and adopted the ideas of assimilation and intermarriage. Udelson says that Zangwill was unable either to resolve or accept the conflict resulting from the clash of Jewish and Western values.
