Jacob Fichman

Jacob Fichman, was an acclaimed Hebrew poet, essayist and literary critic. He was born in 1881 in a small town in southern Russia. He settled in Israel in 1925 and died there in 1958.

Fichman's poetry followed a traditional lyric Romantic style. His poetic background reflected in his works of prose that were sometimes seen as being nearly works of poetry in themselves. His other work included textbooks, articles in periodicals and introductions in literary anthologies. His critical essays focused heavily on the lives of the authors rather than on focusing directly on their work, giving the reader a holistic view of the author and the work.

His book of poetry "Peat Sadeh" ("A Corner of a Field"), published in 1943, received the Bialik Prize.

His name is also transliterated as "Yakov" Fichman.
