Quote of the Day

 

The Synagogue Praying

” Literature in general, and the narrative prose of the Hebrew Bible in particular, cultivates certain profound and haunting enigmas, delights in  leaving its audiences guessing about motives and connections, and, above all, loves to set ambiguities of word choice and image against one another in an  endless interplay that resists neat resolution”

Robert Alter, from The Five Books of Moses, W.W. Norton & Company Ltd. (London)

I am working my way through this book with great delight. PN
