Abstract:

Through close readings of the biblical texts, the author makes a powerful argument for the idea that the creators of the midrashic commentary, the medieval rabbinic commentators, and the Hassidic commentators were themselves on some level aware of the complex interplay between conscious and unconscious levels of experience and used this knowledge in their interpretations. In her analysis of the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Jonah, Abraham, Rebecca, Isaac, Joseph and his brothers, Ruth, and Estheruhow they communicated with the world around them, with God, and with the various parts of their selves, the author offers fascinating insights into the interaction between consciousness and unconsciousness.
