Item description for The Fullness of Time: Poems by Gershom Scholem (English and German Edition) by Gershom Scholem, Richard Sieburth, Steven M. Wasserstrom, Richard Sieburth & Steven M. Wasserstrom...
One of the greatest scholars of the twentieth century, Gershom Scholem virtually created the subject of Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism as a serious area of study. His influence, however, has been felt far beyond the confines of the academy and to this day extends into the realm of literature and the arts. Literature played a critical part in Scholem's own life, especially in his formative years, and he wrote poems from his teens on. This bilingual volume in English and German gathers together the best of them for the first time in any language. It contains dark, shockingly prescient poems about Zionism, parodies of German and Jewish philosophers, and poems to other writers, including a series of powerful lyrics to his close friend Walter Benjamin.
