Item Description...
The Book of Questions, of which volumes IV, V, VI are together published here, is a meditative narrative of Jewish Experience, and, more generally, man's relation to the world. In these volumes the word is personified in the woman Yael, silence in her still-born child Elya. Even though words imply ambiguity and lies, they are the home of the exile. A book becomes the Book, fragments of the law that are in some way unified, where past and present, the visionary, and the common place, encounter each other. For Jabes every word is a question in the book of being. Man defines himself in the world against all that threatens his existence- death, the infinite, silence, that is, God, his primal opponent. How can one speak what cannot be spoken?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
look, it's abstract poetry  Nov 30, 2003
If you've stumbled upon this book and know nothing about it, you probably won't like it. To say this book is "a narrative musing" is like calling ulysses a narrative musing. It is highly abstract, abstruse, and fabulous. The the book of questions, much use is made of the question and answer format, not socratic, but in the form used by the rebbi. The questions often seem to have little to do with the answers, mimicing a koan.

If you know what this book is, you don't need to read the reviews. If you need to read the reviews, don't buy the book.

silence in the interval  Jun 7, 2002
Jabes has found a truth beyond words, the act between two thoughts, maybe all that is left to man when reflecting on Shoa. This book reminds me of Feynman diagrams; a dialogue of dreams between the finality of two sentences. The possibilities within these two finalities,if not hope, provide the comfort that being alive is not necesarily knowing or understading; it starts with breathing and reaching to the other..the rest, as in physics, is a phenomenum of the moment. Read it, it will help you write your book among the authority of shared words.
questions  May 9, 2000
this book changed my life forever. it changed the way i see life, religion, my culture, and writing. if you haven't read it yet, you don't know the feeling of suddenly falling but remaining in the same place.
