    Overview

    Summary
    "The breadth of Werner Weinberg's scholarship was prodigious, yielding monographs on ancient Hebrew epigraphy and biblical exegesis; the syntax of Rabbinic Hebrew; medieval grammars; and numerous studies on various aspects of Modern Hebrew. Both Weinberg and Lisl, his wife, survived internment at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. This collection of essays reprinted here, a little more than three decades after it first appeared, conveys Weinberg's ongoing struggle to put into words something that might offer understanding to post-Holocaust generations. But these essays are also about a survivor's own desire for meaning and sense in a senseless world. Most are framed around a series of questions that constitute Weinberg's "prison," and each time he attempts to pass through its portal, he finds himself "held back at the threshold." -- Jacket flap.
