AUTHOR

Wiesel, Elie

SUMMARY

"Wiesel's storytelling is, of course, much more than an act of transmission. It is an act of love and of lesson-giving....Just as, for Wiesel, biblical stories are not events of bygone times but paradigmatic tales of complex human beings navigating complex relationships, Talmudic masters are not disembodied rabbis debating obscurities but brilliant and flawed men struggling to make sense of God's will and God's world. And Hasidic life, in all of its glory and all of its difficulty, is his lost world, as present to him as the present....Here, as in his earlier books, he embraces canonical Jewish texts and famous Jewish teachers as shapers of his particular past, but fashions them into interlocutors for humanity's future. The inheritor of a tradition emerges again as a creator of traditions."Wiesel, Elie is the author of 'Wise Men and Their Tales Portraits of Biblical, Talmudic, and Hasidic Masters', published 2005 under ISBN 9780805211207 and ISBN 0805211209.
