A Simple Story, by Israel’s Nobel laureate in literature, S.Y. Agnon

Mon November 4, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Israel Book Group
Monday November 4, 7 pm at Mount Zion. We will be discussing A Simple Story, by Israel’s Nobel laureate in literature, S.Y. Agnon.
Set in the Jewish Eastern European life now vanished, A Simple Story is a story of love unrequited, marriage, melancholy and madness. Through these travails, the protagonists of the tale achieve a greater awakening.
“Agnon’s achievement is to have combined gentle mockery of the myriad characters he brings so engagingly to life with staunch championing of values and customs that were soon to be doomed. His scholarship and literary astuteness inform a story that is at once rich in biblical allusion and redolent of the society in which he was raised.”—Publisher’s Weekly.
