The Slave by ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER translated from Yiddish by the author and CECIL HEMLEY and abridged for radio in ten parts by DONALD BANCROFT
Read by Gabriel Woolf (1)
' Before he milked the cows, Jacob said his introductory prayer. Reaching the sentence " thou hast not made me a slave", he paused. Could these words be spoken by him? He was Jan Bzik 's slave. True, according to Polish law, not even the gentry had the ripht to force a Jew into servitude. But who in this remote village obeyed the law of the land? .' The author was born in Poland in 1904 and emigrated to the USA in 1935. The Slave is a powerful love story set against the exotic background of 17th-century Poland.
