More About Akiva Israel

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Akiva Israel, barely begun of his twenties, is the author of over twenty books, though ?Scholar? marks the first of these projects successfully reaching publication. Like ?Scholar, these works were written down well over a decade ago. Now Mr. Israel struggles against ?the muteness and maliciousness? of an unachieved aspiration, to return to the University. It is the author's hope that the long-awaited release of ?Scholar? will assist him in his struggle ?to go back home again, ? where the author might assist others with their searches out of these and other like, avoidable, and therefore, meaningless struggles.

Reviews - What do customers think about Scholar by the Warsaw Fire?

Read this book!  Aug 12, 2008
This is the most brilliant book that I have ever read. The longer review is very accurate and I wish I could write or read or do anything as well as this book is written!
Incredible - A view inside the mind of literary darkness and light.  Mar 24, 2008
I don't even know where to begin. Genius. "Scholar" is a radical departure from the traditions of the Western narrative, and Akiva Israel is more than aware of this. He goes to great detail to explain his intent with this new genre he calls "Angstrophy," and the material borne of it stands witness to its effectiveness.

The stories contained in it are woven together as small fragments of a greater story - all centered around a theme of the Jewish search for meaning amongst his repeated exiles. The first story tells the tale of Uriahkles, a Roman soldier who we later discover was born of a Jewish mother, and follows through stories of the Jews through the middle ages of Europe, into the early 20th century Jewish ghetto in Russia, and right up to the front door of tomorrow.

Yet they are not told the way most writers would tell it. The plot, as Israel explains, is not merely a linear unfolding of causal history, but is subject to something much more fundamental. Thus the reader finds himself wandering amidst the thoughts of the character, rather than simply watching the events occur from outside.

If the reader expects a traditional third-party, past tense narration, he may be confused by the winding roads in the story. But upon realizing the intent of the author to go beyond such a static re-iteration of dead history, one will find a scintillating journey awaits.

As I read my copy through yet again, I find myself in awe at the beauty with which such darkness, in the deep and painful themes explored, is uncovered in the mind of the author, and at the light of brilliance displayed in the artwork that exists in the form of the words on the pages.

Definitely worth reading, and worth reading through several times.
