Masterpieces of Hebrew Literature is a true masterpiece of its own-one of the few collections in which readers can find important works of Jewish tradition and culture by such authors as Rashi, Maimonides, Judah Halevi, and Joseph Caro, all in one place. Curt Leviant includes literature that spans many genres, from fiction and poetry to legal, ethical, and midrashic works; from responsa and Biblical commentary to histories and letters. His brief introductions place the works and their authors in historical perspective. Curt Leviant, PhD is the author of The Man Who Thought He Was Messiah and the editor of Masterpieces of Hebrew Literature.
