Requiem: A Tale of Exile and Return by Erel Shalit
Dear friends and colleagues,
I am pleased to share with you the announcement of my newly published novella, Requiem: A Tale of Exile and Return, in which I have fictionalized my ruminations on issues of exile and return.
The razor-sharp edge of religious beliefs and national conflict, of shadowy projections and existential anxiety, that characterize Israel and its neighbors, gives rise to a particular blend of archetypal fate and personal destiny, of doubt and conviction, despair and commitment, of collective identity and personal choice. However, I do believe that the essence of my wonderings reach beyond the shores of the eastern Mediterranean or Jewish tradition. I believe the tension between a sense of exile and return, belongingness and estrangement, are universal aspects, certainly in our post-modern world.
While Israeli reality provides the external context, the story serves, as well, as a metaphor for the exile and return of the soul, which necessarily is a journey through shadowy valleys.
I invite those of you who wish to comment or discuss issues concerning Requiem, to post your responses to this blog.
