The most haunting tale, ``The Rabbi of Bacherach,'' vividly describes a Passover feast at the home of a rabbi who lives in the Jewish ghetto of a medieval German town. During the celebration, unfamiliar guests leave a Christian child's corpse under the table so that the rabbi will be accused of ritual murderbut the rabbi escapes the lynch mob.

Also included here are Heine's ironic narrative poems, ``Hebrew Melodies.'' This is a lyrical and persuasive compilation. (January)
