Love in the Time of Corona or Literature and Catastrophe
Israeli novelist, Ayelet Gundar Goshen, will present this free remote lecture.
Literature loves catastrophes, as they reveal a person’s true nature. For two thousand years, Jewish texts have faced this question: how should one behave when the world dissolves into chaos? In these moments, we find ordinary men who turn into heroes, heroes who turn into villains, we find cruelty – but also grace, and love. Join Goshen as she explores these moments, from Noah’s Ark through Amos Oz’s Jerusalem under siege, isolation is depicted as both curse and opportunity.
