More work could undoubtedly be done there. Hollander has thoroughly explored the Montevideo community. Recently Eleonora A. Katz, ourselves, and others; but excluding texts provided by Eastern immigrants to Israel ; to our knowledge, some 2, texts have been collected in Morocco; as contrasted with some Eastern and 56 Moroccan texts collected in the United States and from recent immigrants to Israel Eastern; Moroccan. Such statistics, however, are approximate and, being of necessity incomplete, must be seen as having only doubtful value.
On these collections, see M. Nor do we know the extent—or present fate—of Alberto Hemsi's unedited Eastern collection. Isaac Levy's unedited collection likewise remains unknown. Moshe Attias refers to various unedited ballad collections that were in his possession. In , Sarah Begas gave him the texts that she had transcribed in Larissa, her birthplace, and Salonika during the s and the early years of the present century.
Samuel Pinto presented in to Attias a copy of a rich collection of ballads and lyric songs that he had gathered in Sarajevo. Some time after the death of Salomon Israel Cherezli , his son Achinoam gave Attias a selection of traditional poetry found among the posthumous papers of the distinguished lexicographer see n. See M. Undoubtedly still other unedited collections have escaped our notice. In addition to the texts collected from Mrs. John D. Silverman with the collaboration of O.
Some or all? One of the discs is dated "May Armistead, I. Katz, and J. The years immediately preceding World War II, the unspeakable events of the Holocaust, and the postwar s seemed to mark a complete cessation of research on Sephardic folk-literature in the United States. Only in did Susan Bassan Warner form a small, but interesting collection of Eastern Sephardic almost exclusively Salonikan ballads in her Columbia M.
MacCurdy revealed the ballad potential of the Atlanta, Georgia, Sephardic community by recording six narrative poems and two lyric songs from a Rhodian informant, Mrs. Catina Cohen. Our own field activities, aimed at forming and saving for future generations a massive collection of Sephardic folk-literature, began in Los Angeles in. Among the apparently unedited romances and romancillos she cites, we count ten texts from the Salonikan tradition and a fragment from Monastir.
MacCurdy and Daniel D. August The most intensive fieldwork in the United States was conducted between and , though there have also been subsequent recording sessions in Los Angeles , Philadelphia , and New York As of now, the total number of texts we have recorded in the United States stands at around five hundred plus many hundreds more collected in Israel and in Morocco, in collaboration with Israel J. Except for one brief Moroccan interview in Los Angeles , our entire U.
A total of 76 informants were interviewed. The texts collected in the United States embody 84 different text-types. The s have witnessed a surge of interest in all aspects of the Pan-Hispanic Romancero. Working in Los Angeles and Seattle, Rina Benmayor brought together, between November and June , a splendid collection of some versions, representing 39 different text-types. The collection's special contribution lies in its abundant documentation from the Bosphorus communities, an area largely neglected in earlier explorations.
Armistead, A. Armistead Madrid: C. Montevideo Uruguay , between December and November , has produced a collection of some 80 romance texts, reflecting 35 different text-types, recorded from 21 different informants originally from Yugoslavia, Greece, and Turkey. Well over half of the versions were collected in the United States. Sephardic ballad fieldwork in the United States has produced notable results. Many hundreds of texts which would otherwise have vanished without a trace have been saved from oblivion.
There are other instances of Sephardic ballad collecting in the United States. Richard D. Barnett, New York: Ktav, , I, —, can be classed as a romance. Max Vorspan and Lloyd P. See, however, pp. Without doubt the next few years will see the irretrievable disappearance of whatever now remains to be saved. Benardete is also the only fieldworker to date to have attempted an extensive survey of both branches of the Sephardic tradition from the vantage point of the American immigrant communities.
All of us who worked subsequently have, in our American fieldwork, concentrated our efforts on either Eastern or Moroccan informants.
See a Problem?
Benardete, on the other hand, cast a wide net and came up with a number of rare text-types, some of which have not been recorded again in the U. As a representative of the Salonikan tradition, 17 Tarquino y Lucrecia should also be noted for its rarity and the same can be said of 20 B Don Bueso y su hermana, which, in its archaic hexasyllabic form, is now scarcely heard in the Moroccan tradition. His no. Barcelona: C. Jacob Glantz—a pioneer of Mexican Yiddish poetry—once observed with undisguised melancholy: "We Yiddish poets are the loneliest in the world, poets without young readers.
His unique Salonikan version of El conde Alarcos no. In the present edition, we have maintained the normative orthography used in the original thesis. Contaminated texts containing more than one narrative type, which in Benardete's thesis were separated into their various components, have been reunited here. In the section devoted to English abstracts and bibliography, we have attempted to draft summaries based on all published texts known to us and on every available unpublished version as well.
The abstracts follow those included in CMP but, in every case, they have been considerably amplified with numerous details produced by a more exhaustive consultation of edited and unedited materials. Each abstract is specific to the subtradition—Eastern or Moroccan—to which the texts edited here belong. The bibliography strives to be exhaustive for both branches of the Sephardic romancero, in that we have attempted to list all versions, both published and unedited, which have been consulted or are known to us. Following the Sephardic listings in the individual bibliographies of each text-type, references, where pertinent, are provided to the most important collections in the modern Castilian, Portuguese, Catalan, and Hispano-American traditions; then, to earlier fifteenth- to seventeenth-century evidence, if it exists; and, finally, to any known analogues in other European traditions, using in each case the fundamental research instruments for each category.
A thematic classification correlated to CMP , a general bibliography, indexes of informants, ballad titles, and first verses, and a glossary of dialect forms have also been provided. It is a pleasure to acknowledge the generous support of the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture and the Committee on Research of the University of California at Santa Cruz in the preparation and printing of this volume.
