Amos Oz ´ 6 Read

Judas AUTHOR Amos Oz Free read ☆ 106 Summary Judas AUTHOR Amos Oz El Ash se viene abajo su novia lo abandona sus padres se arruinan y él se ve obligado a dejar sus estudios en la universidad En ese momento desesperado encuentra refugio y trabajo en una vieja casa de piedra de Jerusalén donde deberá hacer compañía y conversar con un anciano inválido y sarcástico A su llegada una atractiva mujer llamada Atalia advertirá a Shmuel de ue no se ena de ella; ese ha sido el mot The narrator of Amos Oz s esoteric masterpiece is Shmuel Ash a university student recently rejected by his girlfriend who must abandon his master s thesis Jewish Views of Jesus because of his family s financial difficulties to unexpectedly seek a new means of survival in the real world of 1959 Israel Answering an advertisement offering room and board in an old Jerusalem apartment in return for entertaining the seventy year old scholar Gershom Wald with five hours of conversation every evening Shmuel does not exactly end up in the real world Besides Wald s daughter in law Atalia who provides the story s necessary love interest Shmuel will find himself among two other spirits from the past who have never left They will constantly prey upon his musings once they have entered into the conversation One is Atalia s father Sheatiel Abravanel a political opponent of David Ben Gurion who sought compromise with the Arabs The other is her husband Micha Gershom Wald s son who was killed during the fighting in 1948Within the confines of this apartment against the backdrop of the Israeli Arab conflict Amos Oz uses Shmuel to search out a rational explanation for the holocaust and the suffering of centuries of Christian pogroms and inuisitionsWith inspiration from his dialogues with Wald Shmuel s Jewish Views of Jesus evolves into what he perceives as the Christian misinterpretation of Judas Iscariot s betrayal of Jesus that put a price on the head of every Jew for centuries thereafter I do not wish to infringe upon the reader experiencing this argument first hand but it is worth mentioning that Shmuel s Judas is very similar to second century interpretations from Gnostics such as the CainitesAs I mentioned in the beginning this is an esoteric novel Mr Oz has the narrative craftsmanship to make it spellbinding by interweaving the story of Atalia s father seeking accommodation with the Arabs as a bass line counterpoint to the melody of Shmuel s Judas I consider this novel to be a soft spoken masterpieceAs a history nerd and a Catholic with a mild theological bent I was thoroughly entranced Amos Oz has jumped to the top of my list of contemporary authors

Judas AUTHOR Amos Oz Free read ☆ 106 Summary Judas AUTHOR Amos Oz «Amos Oz narra en Judas las grandes preguntas y conflictos de la historia y de la religión en Oriente Próximo»Judas el regreso de Amos Oz a la novela género ue no había frecuentado desde Una historia de amor y oscuridad plantea una audaz y novedosa interpretación de la figura de Judas Iscariote en el contexto de una angustiosa y delicada historia de amor    En el invierno de 1959 el mundo del joven Shmu 35 stars This is my first book by this prolific author who I have known about for many years but never took the opportunity to read until now The book is complex in some ways and I found multiple levels here political religious and for me mostly the emotional level In looking at some biographical material it appears that Oz is not only prolific but political and not without his critics in standing for a two state solution to the Israeli and Palestinian conflict The intellectual religious aspect of the book is depicted as the main character a young man has just abandoned his research on the Jewish view of Jesus Conseuently there are parts of the book that discuss his view of whether Judas was a traitor or whether by betraying Jesus there would have been no Christianity The politicalreligious aspect was covered in the story of one of the character s father and whether he was a traitor in favoring a two state solution So is it about the uestion of whether a traitor is really a traitor about loyalty All of this in all honesty is just a bit too heady for me However there are things that drew me into the book It did not feel like a translation in any way There are wonderful descriptions and lovely writing in general and I found the three main characters appealing wanting to know about them and how they would end up Shmuel Ash 25 has lost the financial help he received from his parents after their bankruptcy He has lost his girlfriend who married her former boyfriend and lost his enthusiasm for his research and in some ways it seems he s lost himself He takes a job as a care giver to an disabled man and his main responsibility is to keep the man company and converse with him in the evening Gershom Wald too suffers a loss his son in 1948 in the Arab Israeli war While Ash is trying to escape what life has dealt him to be away from it all he finds a lonely life until he is attracted to Atalia Abravanel widow of Wald s son 20 years his senior There as I mentioned above a lot going on here on an introspective intellectual level but for me the meaning of the story was about loss and loneliness and the connections that Shmuel makes with Atalia and Gershom There are several reviews in major publications that will give a in depth analysis on what Oz was perhaps trying to do here and for anyone interested I suggest you look for those From my perspective I m glad I read this for the writing and the poignant moments of connections between the characters I received an ARC of this book from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt through Edelweiss

Judas AUTHOR Amos Oz Free read ☆ 106 Summary Judas AUTHOR Amos Oz Ivo de la expulsión de sus predecesores En la aparente rutina ue se crea en la casa el tímido Shmuel siente una progresiva agitación causada en parte por el deseo y la curiosidad ue Atalia le provoca También retoma su investigación sobre la imagen de Jesús para los judíos y la misteriosa y maldita figura de Judas Iscariote la supuesta encarnación de la traición y la mezuindad va absorbiéndole sin remedi How deep the silence is Atalia said You can almost hear the stones breathing Amos Oz JudasMy friend Spenky has said I prefer writing over plot Spenky would love Amos Oz s Judas The writing is beautiful This is the first work of Oz s I have read Judas was probably not the best place to start my journey with Oz but I had heard so much about this book I wanted to read it Judas is set in Jerusalem at the end of 1959 Israel is a country rife with hostility mired in the pain of the past and unsure of her future However in one old rundown house the focus is solely on the past both recent and ancient as a young man tries to make sense of how those who believe the most are often those who are loved the least Oz s focus here is on whom what is a traitor Considering how often Oz has been labeled a traitor it should hardly surprise anyone that he is fixated by the term s loaded implications Oz places his examination of treason center stage focusing on nationalism and the devastating affect it can have on a people Judas is a difficult read calling upon the reader to be actively engaged all at times while inhabiting the world Oz has created If you are looking for a relaxing read Judas is not for you The storytelling is well plotted and characters expertly drawn The story s present set in the brutal Jerusalem winter of 1959 1960 the past is set in both the Israel of 1947 1948 and during Jesus ministry Oz wisely leaves it up to the reader to draw their own conclusions about Jesus and his relationship with the Jews The most fascinating sections of the book deals with Judas his relationship with Jesus This leads to a startling conclusion which mesmerizes the reader This gospel is told by none other than Judas It should be noted that the original title in Hebrew of Oz s book translates to The Gospel According to Judas Oz s work in Chapter 47 will stay with me for uite some time Was Judas both the first and last Christian It s an interesting argument Oz s portrayal of Judas may be the most humane and sympathetic you ever encounter23 s of Judas are a character study of Shmuel Oz focuses on the uirks of this out of shape man the messy beard and clumsy demeanor that overshadow his kind intelligent soul His search for solitude after his relationship break up is successful and he uses his time to clear his mind through hours spent in his attic room or wandering the streets of post independence Jerusalem Once he s recovered somewhat he turns his mental energies back to his studies of Jewish views on Jesus it is here that Oz unleashes the full of writing talents and Judas turns towards the subject of its titleShmuel s world revolves around Atalia and Gershom for most of the novel They are two broken individuals Inhabiting this world is destroying Shmuel although neither he nor the reader realizes this until the end of the novel Shmuel is infatuated with the widow Atalia despite Gershom s warnings It is she who holds the most sway over Shmuel and he gradually gives himself over to her Despite feeling sympathy for both Shmuel and Atalia neither is very likeable We clearly see the faults and shortcomings of these two and yet Judas does succeed as a love story albeit a very unconventional sort of love story Oz s language is poetic as he effortlessly transports us from 1959 Israel to the Israel of 1947 and ancient Jerusalem and back again Judas was spellbinding By the time I closed the cover I had come to realize that there are many forms of betrayal and a traitor is not always a traitor
