A. Glantz-Leyeles 1889-1966
A. Glantz-Leyeles
line Aron Glantz used the psuedonym, A. Leyeles, as a writer. He grew up in Lodz and came to the United States in 1909. From his earliest years, he was active in Jewish nationalist activities, particularly those of the Yiddishist, Territorialist kind, which sought to establish and promote Yiddish cultural autonomy. His first Yiddish book of poetry, "Labarint" [Labyrinth], published in 1918, was the first In Zikh work; however, he went on, in the 1920s and 1930s, to experiment with various poetic forms not yet known in Yiddish.
