whilst the Six-Day warfare started, Elie Wiesel rushed to Israel. "I went to Jerusalem simply because I needed to cross someplace, I needed to depart the current and convey it again to the previous. you notice, the fellow who got here to Jerusalem then got here as a beggar, a madman, now not believing his eyes and ears, and specifically, his memory."

This haunting novel happens within the days following the Six-Day warfare. A Holocaust survivor visits the newly reunited urban of Jerusalem. on the Western Wall he encounters the beggars and madmen who congregate there each night, and who strength him to confront the ghosts of his previous and his ties to the current. Weaving jointly delusion and secret, parable and paradox, Wiesel bids the reader to affix him on a non secular trip backward and forward in time, constantly returning to Jerusalem.

Mais s’est-on jamais interrogé sur ce préalable, déposé dans l. a. langue, celui de pouvoir dire simplement : « le beau » ?
