If you believe in God then He exists This sentiment best surmises the uestions and crises of faith presented in the Nobel winning body of work from Isaac Bashevis Singer The Polish born author came to the United States on the brink of WWII and left an honorable mark on Jewish literature winning two National Book Awards one for his memoirs and one for A Crown of Feathers which he shared with Thomas Pynchon for Gravity s Rainbow as well as the Nobel in 1978 While having written With a wide variety of stories funny sad and occasionally outright Photography and History in Colonial Southern Africa depressing Singer explores the strength of faith when faced with adversity be it folktale Supreme Lessons Of The Gods And Earths demons or holocaust horrors and illustrates the challenge of believing in a God who is eternally silent Singer personally selected the 47 stories presented in this collection selected from a Der perfekte Mord deep pool of seven story collections He says this was The Everton Miscellany difficult since he felt like some Oriental father with a harem full of women and children I cherish them all However this offers a good overview of his work since it contains the pieces he feels best represents himself The stories range in form and content yet the message of faith resonates through all of them in various forms The earlier stories read like folktales that reminded me very much of the Ukrainian Tales of Nikolai Gogol presenting small Jewish villages in the backcountry of Poland assailed by Riddle Of The Wayward Books Wishbone Mysteries #3 demons and black magic the satanic orgy in The Gentleman from Cracow is unforgettable While it is frightening to see evil beings stalk the earth with ragged claws and hoofs trying to seduce Rabbi s from their studies and women from the virginity the truly chilling creatures are those in human flesh of his later stories Singer shows that man can be the epitome of evil even through simple seemingly harmless ways not just the big obvious ones like the holocaust stories Through each tale we watch evil Pet to the Tentacle Monsters descend upon the poor Jewish souls and even when they take all they cannot take their faith Faith is often shaken ridiculed and lost but the Void these characters face when they are stripped of their faith is far frightening than the evils that beleaguer them He presents any which way one could feel lost in the world and uestion the existence of a God a being who is always silent and remains on the sidelines फिरफिरे despite any pleading While the opinions of a Another Gospel Cults Alternative Religions and the New Age Movement deity morph through the timeline of his writing he never The Big V denounces his God Singer sparked plenty of controversy within both literary and religious circles with stories that embrace homosexuality and transgender characters However he broaches the topics with tact and respect and such a broad love and open mind is what led him to be a recipient of such high honors Singer writes what he believes never panders and makes no excuses In his Author s Note to this collection he writes how he has recognized and avoided the Domesticating Kelsen dangers of writing fiction 1 The idea that the writer must be a sociologist and a politician adjusting himself to what are called social Bravo Two Zero dialectics2Greed for money and uick recognition3 Forced originality namely the illusion that pretentious rhetoric precious innovations in style and playing with artificial symbols can express the basic and ever changing nature of human relations or reflect the combinations and complications of heredity and environment He enters into a longer A Fems Playground discussion on the pitfalls of what he considers experimental literature arguing that literature can very well Amazon, main basse sur le futur describe the absurd but it should never become absurd itself This makes one wonder what Singer would think of the recent trend of books that as many myself included have Les Hirondelles de Kaboul dubbed weirdness for the sake of weirdness Regardless of ones opinion on experimental books I ll keep silent here and simply present the authors opinion as I For the Love of Cockroaches: Husbandry, Biology, and History of Pet and Feeder Blattodea don t wish to spark an argument with this as I am in no way ualified to present an opinion I Pnin do enjoy the general idea of writing for your beliefs and not for othersLiterature lost a valuable moral compass when Singer passed on July 24th 1991 His method of writing flows in a manner that makes one feel they are on his knee hearing a life lesson story Let us all sit back and listen45 As a 142 Ostriches disclaimer of sorts when it comes to books such as this I try to remain The Tentacle Monster Everyone Wanted detached from the author s opinions as these are often touchy subjects I hope I respectfully presented this information and I Unpublished Revelations of the Prophets and Presidents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Vol 1 do very much wish not to offend anyone I have no ualms with Return to Red River discussing these ideas with an open
