UNDER THIS BLAZING LIGHT by Amos Oz

UNDER THIS BLAZING LIGHT

By Amos Oz

This collection - published here in English for the first time - brings together a number of political, personal and literary pieces by Israel's most celebrated novelist and litterateur. Topics covered include: an examination of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a dispute between 'right and right'; reflections on the character of Zionism, on the concept of 'homeland', and on the nature of the kibbutz; the meaning of socialism in the Israeli context; and portraits of several Jewish writers and thinkers whose ideas and themes in one way or another have proved influential or determinative for Amos Oz himself. These essays, which put a unique perspective on the author's own experiences and development, reveal a complex and humane figure of practical political influence as well as of significant literary stature. They will win for Oz new readers, while delighting those who will recognise here the qualities evident in his other writings.
