Abraham Joshua Heschel, Edward K. Kaplan, Morton M. Leifman (translator)


The first published work of A. J. Heschel. Written between 1927 and 1933 and never published in English before, this is the intimate spiritual diary of a devout European Jew, loyal to the revelation at Sinai and afflicted with reverence for all human beings.

The 66 poems in this book appeared in Warsaw in 1933 when Heschel was 26 years old and still a doctoral candidate in philosophy at the University of Berlin. Written between 1927 and 1933óand never published in English beforeóthis is the intimate spiritual diary of a devout European Jew, loyal to the revelation at Sinai and afflicted with reverence for all human beings.

These poems sound themes that will resonate throughout Heschelís later popular writings: human holiness, a passion for truth, awe and wonder before nature, Godís quest for righteousness, solidarity with the downtrodden, and unwavering commitment to tikkun olam. In these poems we also discover a young manís acute loneliness, dismay at Godís distance, and dreams of spiritual and sensual intimacy with a woman.
