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

Book Description:
In Midrash and Theory, David Stern presents an approach to midrashic literature through the prism of contemporary theory.As midrash--the literature of classical Jewish Scriptural interpretation--has become the focus of new interest in contemporary literary circles, it has been invoked as a precursor of post-structuralist theory and criticism. At the same time, the midrashic imagination has undergone a revival in the larger Jewish community and shown itself capable of exercising a powerful influence and hold on a new type of contemporary Jewish writing. Stern examines this resurgence of fascination with ancient Jewish interpretation from the persepctive of the cultural relevance of midrash and its connection to its original historical and literary contexts.
