Selected Stories

Dvora Baron
Dvora Baron is considered the first major woman writer of "classical" modern Hebrew Literature. Although most of her stories were set in the Jewish townlets of Europe, her tales deal with the universal human condition. She empathizes with the wretched and the downtrodden, the victims of metaphysical evil and of ruthless men, but her primary concern is with women and their suffering. Baron was a feminist before her time, and her protest stories depict a shocking picture of exploited women trapped in a patriarchal society, rejected women, and others whose human liberty and dignity are trampled by the social order and family life.
