Saul Tchernihovsky

Tchernihovsky, Saul (chərnəhôfˈskē) [key], 1873–1943, Russian poet who wrote in Hebrew. He was a practicing physician. His sonnets and idylls eschew the didacticism of typical Hebrew poetry and show a pantheistic outlook, derived from the Greek classics, which he admired and translated into Hebrew.
