Surviving Lamentations: Catastrophe, Lament and Protest in the Afterlife of a Biblical Book (Hardback)Tod Linafelt (author)
Hardback Published: 07/07/2000
- Not available
This work offers an alternative reading of Lamentations in light of the "literature of survival" (works written by survivors of catastrophe) as well as literary and philosophical reflections on "the survival of literature". It refocuses attention on the figure of Zion as a manifestation of a basic need to give voice to suffering, and traces the afterlife of Lamentations in Jewish literature, in which text after text attempts to provide the response to Zion's lament that is lacking in Lamentations itself.
