By Words Alone by Sidra DeKoven Ezrahi

Book Description

The creative literature that evolved from the Holocaust constitutes an unprecedented encounter between art and life. Those who wrote about the Holocaust were forced to extend the limits of their imaginations to encompass unspeakably violent extremes of human behavior. The result, as Ezrahi shows in "By Words Alone," is a body of literature that transcends national and cultural boundaries and shares a spectrum of attitudes toward the concentration camps and the world beyond, toward the past and the future.

Booking Passage by Sidra DeKoven Ezrahi Booking Passage, Hardback (February 2000)

Until the late 19th century, Jews were identified in their own religious and poetic imagination as wanderers, their sacred center - Jerusalem, Zion - fatefully out of reach. This book examines the work of medieval Hebrew poet Yehuda Halevi to chart a journey whose end was envisioned as the realignment of the people with their original center.
