Lion's Honey: The Myth of Samson

Lion's Honey: The Myth of Samson

David Grossman


Israel’s so much lauded modern author retells the parable of Samson, essentially the most tempestuous, charismatic, and colourful characters within the Hebrew Bible. There are few different Bible tales with a lot drama and motion, narrative fireworks and uncooked emotion, as we discover within the story of Samson: the conflict with the lion; the 3 hundred burning foxes; the ladies he bedded and the only lady that he enjoyed; his betrayal by way of the entire girls in his existence, from his mom to Delilah; and, in spite of everything, his murderous suicide, whilst he introduced the home down on himself and 3 thousand Philistines. “Yet, past the wild impulsiveness, the chaos, the din, we will make out a existence tale that's, at backside, the tortured trip of a unmarried, lonely and turbulent soul who by no means came upon, wherever, a real domestic on the earth, whose very physique used to be a harsh position of exile. For me, this discovery, this reputation, is the purpose at which the parable — for all its grand pictures, its larger-than-life adventures — slips silently into the day by day life of every folks, into our so much inner most moments, our buried secrets.” — from David Grossman’s creation to Lion’s Honey
