Be'or Hadash
Studies in the Hebrew Biblical Play of the Haskalah Period
Naomi Zohar

The book examines a neglected literary genre of ’the Haskalah period. The different chapters offer new readings of the biblical stories in previously unknown plays and assess their poetic and dramatic value together with’their relevance for the contemporary reader. The thirteen plays treated in the book, in chronological order from 1794 through 1876, represent approximately half of the biblical plays written in Hebrew in the Haskalah period. Includes annotated editions of the plays Bat Yiftah and Pilegesh be-Givah.
