Abstract:

"The Particulars of Rapture, the sequel to Avivah Zornberg's study of the Book of Genesis, takes its title from a line by the American poet Wallace Stevens about the interdependence of opposite things, such as male and female, and conscious and unconscious. To her reading of the familiar story of the Israelites and their flight from slavery in Egypt, Avivah Zornberg has brought a vast range of classical Jewish interpretations and Midrashic sources, literary allusions, and ideas from philosophy and psychology. Her quest in this book, as she writes in the Introduction, is "to find those who will hear with me a particular idiom of redemption," who will hear "within the particulars of rapture ... what cannot be expressed.""--Jacket.
