Description:
Howard Schwartz - whom Cynthia Ozick describes as " an American Hans Christian Anderson" has here superbly translated and retold fifty of the best and most time-honored Jewish tales of the supernatural, collecting them into one volume for the very first time. Gathered from countless sources ranging from the ancient Middle East to 12th century Germany and later Eastern European oral tradition, these tales of terror include Jewish variants of the Pandora and Persephone myths and of such famous folktales as " The Fisherman and His Wife," " The Sorcerer's Apprentice," and "Bluebeard," as well as several tales from the Middle Ages that have never before been published. Focusing on crucial turning points in life - birth, marriage, death - the tales feature wandering spirits, marriage with demons, werewolves, speaking heads, possession by dybbuks (souls of the dead who enter bodies of the living), and every other kind of supernational adversary. Lilith's Cave is certain to entrance readers of Jewish literature as well as anyone with an affection for fantasy and folklore.

This is a print-on demand title.
