Gershom Scholem: Poetica

Book presentation with Sigrid Weigel and Trystan Pütter (in German)

Gershom Scholem’s Literary Cosmos – The Poetica collection comprises poetry and essays by the religious scholar and provides insights into his work as a writer, translator, critic, and Israeli intellectual. Scholem’s very personal poetry from six decades of his life is hardly known – Poetica not only presents these for the first time in a collection, but it also tells the in part biographical stories of the poems’ origins.
