I would like to bring to your attention two recent publications by Prof. Adam Goldwyn at North Dakota State University on the life and work of Rae Dalven. Please see the blurb below.

Two books recently published by Isnafi Press aim to recuperate the life and dramatic works of the translator and scholar of modern Greek poetry, Rae Dalven (1904-1992). As recounted in a new biography by Adam Goldwyn, Rae Dalven: The Life of a Greek-Jewish American, Dalven was born in Preveza before immigrating as a child with her family to New York. She grew up among the immigrant Jewish community of Manhattan's Lower East Side, working as a seamstress in a sweatshop while pursuing her dreams of becoming a scholar and playwright. Isnafi has also published Marriages Are Arranged in Heaven, the first of a series of four historical/autobiographical plays she wrote about Greek-Jewish life in Greece and among the Greek-Jewish immigrant community in New York across the twentieth century, also edited with an introduction by Goldwyn. Dalven's plays are characterized by their focus on women's experiences, and Marriages Are Arranged in Heaven tells the story, drawn from the experiences of her mother and aunts, of the arranged marriages of several Jewish sisters in Ioannina in the 1930s.
