Author: Celia Dropkin

Celia Dropkin (1887-1956) was a Yiddish poet. The explicitly sexual imagery and themes of Celia Dropkin's poems redefined the ways modern Yiddish poetry could depict relationships between women and men.

These poems open up a woman's psyche in a voice that sounds contemporary today. Best known for her poetry, Dropkin also published short stories and was an accomplished visual artist.
