AUTHOR

Jabes, Edmond, Waldrop, Rosmarie, Taylor, Mark C.

SUMMARY

The death of Edmond JabÈs in January 1991 silenced one of the most compelling voices of the postmodern, post-Holocaust era. JabÈs's importance as a thinker, philosopher, and Jewish theologian cannot be overestimated, and his enigmatic style--combining aphorism, fictional dialogue, prose meditation, poetry, and other forms--holds special appeal for postmodern sensibilities. In The Book of Margins, his most critical as well as most accessible book, JabÈs is again concerned with the questions that inform all of his work: the nature of writing, of silence, of God and the Book. JabÈs considers the work of several of his contemporaries, including Georges Bataille, Maurice Blanchot, Roger Caillois, Paul Celan, Jacques Derrida, Michel Leiris, Emmanuel LÉvinas, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and his translator, Rosmarie Waldrop. This book will be important reading for students of Jewish literature, French literature, and literature of the modern and postmodern ages. Born in Cairo in 1912, Edmond JabÈs lived in France from 1956 until his death in 1991. His extensively translated and widely honored works include The Book of Questions and The Book of Shares. Both of these were translated into English by Rosmarie Waldrop, who is also a poet. Religion and Postmodernism seriesJabes, Edmond is the author of 'Book of Margins' with ISBN 9780226388885 and ISBN 0226388883.
