My Interest in Isaac B. Singer

During the summer of 1999, the University of Texas had an exhibit in Undergraduate Library on Issac Bachevis Singer. I was able to go see it and was fascinated and amazed by what I learned. The exhibit touched me a bit I learned a lot. Singer for one was the author of Yentl, though he was not at all pleased with Barbara Streisand's approach to his story. Nor was I. The music lacked continuity with the jewish lifestyle in my opinion. Too bloody Broadway!

Any case, one of the things that touched me the most I wrote down. Though typically a controversial write, Singer took up writing children's books. And he gave his reason why below:

Why I write for children

by Isaac Bachevis Singer

  1. Children read books not reviews.
  2. Children don't read to find their identity.
  3. They don't read to free themselves from guilt, to quench their thirst for, or to get rid of alienation.
  4. They have no use for psychology.
  5. They detest sociology.
  6. They don't try to understand Kafka or Finnegan's Wake.
  7. They still believe in God, the family, agnels, devils, witches, goblins, logic, clariy, punctuation, and other obsolete stuff.
  8. They love interesting stories, not commentary, guides or footnotes.
  9. When a book's boring, they yawn openly, without any shame or fear of authority.
  10. They don't expect their beloved writer to redeem humanity. Yours as they are, they know that it is not in his powero. Only the adults have such childish illusions.
from "A Day of Pleasure: Stories of a Boy Growing Up in Warsaw" 1970
