Satan in Goray
Satan in Goray (1955) is a novel by Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902–1991). It was originally published between January and September 1933 in installments in a literary magazine called Globus and was Singer's first published work. The English translation (from Yiddish) was made by Jacob Sloan with the author's help. It is set in the years following 1648, when the Chmelnicki massacres, considered one of the greatest Jewish catastrophes, occurred. The story describes the Jewish messianic cult that arose in the village of Goraj and the effects of the 17th century faraway false messiah Shabbatai Zvi on the local population.
