Publisher's Description

Beth Hawkins focuses on the problematic faith in the works of Kafka, Celan, and Jabes to reevaluate the notions of God and covenant in light of Nietzsche's "death of God" hypothesis. the divine-human relation. In Reluctant Theologians, she shows that Kafka, Celan, and Jabes offer as a testament, as three unique instances of Kiddush Ha-Shem (sanctification of the divine name), to a divine source that persists at the same time as it is being continuously reconstituted in the moment of writing. What connects Kafka, Celan, and Jabes to a postmodern philosophy is their shared belief that a specifically Jewish ethic can serve as a model for a universal ethic.
