Biographical notes:

Avraham Shlonsky was an Israeli poet and editor born in Ukraine. He was influential in the development of modern Hebrew and its literature in Israel through his many acclaimed translations of literary classics, particularly from Russian. He was particularly known for his humor, and earned the nickname "Lashonsky" from the wisecrackers of his generation (lashon means "tongue", i.e. "language") for his unusually clever and astute innovations in the newly evolving Hebrew language.
