Early Zionism on Review Jan. 14 2014
By Eric Maroney - Published on
Format: Paperback
In The Living on the Dead, Aharon Megged takes on some of the central myths of early of Zionism, while crafting a complex novel which revolves around the theme of creativity and inspiration.

It is helpful, but by no means necessary, to know a bit about the pre-state history of the Jewish community in Palestine, the Yishuv, to understand this novel fully; so many of the concerns revolve around the central axis of Zionist goals and failures.

But Megged is an accomplished novelist, and allows the work to work for itself. Although the reader without background will miss much, there is enough human drama of a universal kind to carry the work.
