The Legend Of Rabbi Ben Levi; Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Hardcover

Publication Date: 
November 28, 2020

"Give me back my sword!" screams the Angel of Death at the renowned Jewish sage Rabbi Yehoshua Ben Levi of Zippori as they battle high above the gates of Paradise. Inspired by this legend from the Talmud, the 1862 poem "The Legend of Rabbi Ben Levi" by the nineteenth-century American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow describes the epic struggle of Rabbi Ben Levi to defeat the Angel of Death and end his reign of terror over mortal men. This stunning volume illustrates Longfellow s poem with mosaic paintings, enhanced by quotations from the original Aramaic Talmud text.
