Abstract:

"By examining both the spiritual and literary elements that make works such as My Name Is Asher Lev (1972) best-sellers, this Critical Companion helps readers gain an appreciation for the considerable literary achievements of Chaim Potok. A close reading is given for each of Potok's eight novels, including his most recent novel set in the Korean War, I Am the Clay (1992). A full chapter on each title examines character and plot development, major themes, and stylistic features. A discussion of the historical context as well as a close critical reading further enhances the understanding the appreciation of each work."--Jacket.
