Example text

Vladek tells Art that the week of the Parshas Truma reading was also the week of Vladek and Anja’s wedding several years before the dream occurred (1:59), a fact that Vladek did not realize until he checked on what the date of his marriage had been, long after the dream took place. He tells Art that Art was born during the week that this Bible passage was read, and that it is this very passage that Art himself read during his Bar Mitzvah ceremony. Except possibly for the Bar Mitzvah ceremony (and thus the related Bible portion) and Vladek’s wedding date, both of which one has some discretion to choose, two of these events—Vladek’s being released from the camp on a predicted day and Art’s birth week—could not possibly be manipulated by Vladek before or after the fact.

On one hand, this brings contemporary readers close to the biblical characters, especially the Hebrew ones. Occasionally the Hebrew characters do look more biblical in dress and hairdo, but the Amalekites, Canaanites, and other non-­Hebrew characters appear in ancient dress much more of­ten than the Hebrews do. In other words, they of­ten have foreign appearances while the Hebrews are, for all intents and purposes, modern Ameri­cans. The Canaanite gods, for instance (179) look particularly foreign.

Lot himself is very disturbed first by the threat to his guests and then by his relatives’ rejection of his call to them to flee the city. He is deeply bothered, as shown in his face. The fire that descends on the evil people of Sodom is rendered in chapter nineteen in a unique way. First they are on fire while they are living, then they become only shadows, and finally the fire leaves the people as burning shadows and the entire city as a cloud of smoke. Lot’s wife very convincingly becomes a pillar of salt.
