The essays collected in this Festschrift have been written by colleagues, friends, students, and admirers of Sol Liptzin, to be presented to him on the occasion of his 85th birthday. The essays are concerned with topics within the domains of literary and cultural study pursued and enriched by Sol Liptzin himself: (I) Yiddish literature, (II) German-Jewish studies and German literature proper, (III) English-German literary relations, (IV) Jews and Jewish literature in America, (V) Biblical themes in world literature and Jewish cultural history. The partial, selected bibliography of his publications included in this volume indicates, in a complementary way, the scope and energy of his engaging and lively mind.
