David Grossman is one of the most important novelists in Israel today, winner of both the Israel Prize for Literature and the Man Booker International Prize. 

In Lion's Honey Grossman gives us a provocative new take on the story of Samson in exhilarating and lucid prose. A judge, or leader, in the hard time when ​“there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes,” Samson is the towering biblical hero who destroys the Philistines with super­human strength. But reading midrashically for what is unsaid and weighing each word in the Hebrew, David Gross­man, the prominent Israeli writer, finds another Samson — a lost child who is a mystery to himself, who never understands the destiny that God has thrust upon him.

In this class, we'll first read the biblical story in English, and to the degree possible, in Hebrew and then we'll re-read the story through Grossman's eyes with Lion's Honey
