Efrayim Margolius


One of the Warsaw romanticists and playwrights from the end of the nineteenth century who was -- according to Dr. Jacob Shatzky --
standing on the threshold of literature and with few exceptions, indeed remained stuck in this corridor.

M. is the composer of a novel "Di gefunene eltrin" (Warsaw 1894), and of the theatre play "Di geheymnise fun di  warshever yudishe zhantses [house-manager] Matt Stones(?), Warsaw, [bdfus] R'Chaim Kelter [n'i] [shnt trm'b lp"k] 1882, p. 48), that brought out the sharp antagonist between the first tenant and the Yiddish host.

The theatre play today is a dear reality(?).  A copy can be found in the New York Public Library.
