Midrash and Theory: Ancient Jewish Exegesis and Contemporary Literary Studies (Rethinking Theory)
by: David Stern
0810111225 / 9780810111226

Book Description:
In this volume, the author presents an approach to Midrashic literature that is responsible and responsive to the principles of contemporary theory. As Midrash - the literature of classical Jewish Scriptual interpretation - has undergone a revival in the larger Jewish community, the Midrashic imagination has shown itself capable of exercising a powerful influence and hold on a recent type of contemporary Jewish writing. Stern examines this phenomenon from the perspective of the cultural relevance of Midrash and its connection to its original historical and literary contexts. Stern also explores the impact of modern literary theory on Midrashic studies, and the resultant changes on the focus, the methods, and the intellectual assumptions of this field.
