Mr. Ezekiel Leavitt. a poet of inter, imtionnl renown Is now visit lug Den ver ns n guest of the Jewish Con sumptlves Relief Society. He is uni. ijue figure in world-literature. Ilis muse Is polyglot—he Clin intone his lyric In their languages Hebrew. Uiqjsinn and Yiddish. His latest volume of poems, entitled "Songs of Grief nml madness." was issued from the Williams Company Press. Boston, translated by Alice Stone Blackwell. Hon. Thomas Xel ;-on Page. I'nited States ambassador to Italy and one of America's great est living writers, in his preface to Ylie volume says of Leavitt: "Apart from the poetry of his work, which appears as inherent in it all as the sap is in the living plant, whether it he a tree, a flower or even a weed, it has been a matter of deep interest to me, and 1 believe will Is* to oth ers, to observe how closely, not. only Kzekiel I.rHvltt Well known poet in Denver tlio spirit, hut the method of the ancient poets of Israel have survive! in this latest of the young sous of Zion, whose harp on the willows sinus ever the minor strain of the exile of Rnblyon. .... Whether in |»euse or in verse, there is that quality of pro. | found, and. indeed, of tragic siueerity | which np|M-nrs to si>cak in all modern , Russian literature from Tolstoi down. Whatever emotion it voices, under all. is caught tile suhtone of a suppression which wrings the heart like the uuap. peni-able anguish of a strong man.*' i'rof. (lotthnrd Dent sell, in his ap preciation of the volume writes: “I did not think that tlic literature, of the whole world contains one genius who was able to write poetry in two languages. Even a prose writer in two languages, who luis acquired any standing in the literature of both na tions, is exceedingly rare. It would seem, however, that the Jew is unique in this respect. Enable to judge the Russian. 1 must say that ls»th the Hebrew and the Yiddish works of Ezekiel Leavitt possess great poetic merit. lift; muse is distinctly Jewish, lie gives expression to the griefs and to the pathos of the Jew ish soul, prodinvd by the unparalleled sufferings of his people." A reviewer in the Christian Reg ister thus characterizes the poet: "Something of the passion which filled the remarkable poems of that greatly gifted woman. Einina Lizarus. is in Ezekiel I/oavitt. Take the little poem by Leavitt, “The Streamlet." It may lie a trifle defective in form, but it is tlie proud assertion that injustice shall not always prevail, that ’granite does not last for aye’ that ’continual dropping.' even of a nation's tears, shall at bust wear away the cruel roekn. Thus the Jew stands ns tin* representative of the religion of sor row. of terrible and undeserved suf fering, and all this is in Mr. Leavitt's striking verse. Then there is Russia. lieenusc Mr. Leavitt is a Russian Jew. and he fully enters into tin* horror of tin* national tragedy. We learn that he was a professor of Hebrew at Kishineff before the massacre, but later escaped to tlds country. In the rather awful poem ’My Curse.’ he sets forth in vivid colon* the terrors of these various destructions of the Jews sometimes, alas! wo have good reason to believe sanctioned, if not absolute. Iy authorized, by government itself." Mr. Ezekiel Leavitt will remain in Denver for n few days and then travel thriiout the Mountain I’arks of Colorado for inspiration and vacation. The Hoard of Trustees will give a banquet in honor of Mr. Ezekiel Lenv. itt Sunday evening. July 17. in Staff Building of the Sanatorium at Edge water. BESSIE I. RUDE COMMUNITY CENTER ANNOUNCEMENTS.
