Contents:
A quest for historicism and the rhetoric of petitions -- Laughter, fantasy, and eroticism : from the scroll of Esther to Esther Midrash -- Exegesis and midrash -- Typology and pesher in the "Letter of Aristeas" -- The sages and the crowd : society behind the culture.
Summary: "The book defies the understanding of culture as a combination of various petrified "patterns," Jewish and Hellenic. It also challenges the idea of separate Jewish cultures. Rather, it endeavors to trace tremendous cultural changes. It was exactly these changes that connected one period to another, one literature to another, and thus embodied continuity and unity of culture."--Jacket.
