Poems and Songs of affection is a translation of the gathering Piyyutim ve-Shirei Yedidot through Georg Mordechai Langer. released in Prague in 1929, it includes an elegy to Langer's good friend and mentor Franz Kafka, and different overtly homo-romantic poems. This collaborative translation by way of Elana and Menachem Wolff brings the attention-grabbing paintings of Langer--poems in addition to an essay on Kafka--to the English-reading public for the 1st time, and sheds mild on a hitherto unexamined relationship.
