But Cynthia Ozick is one of the greatest American writers of the last 50 years, and The Pagan Rabbi and Envy are possibly the greatest short fiction she's written (other contenders: "An Education" and the Puttermesser stories). The title story is about a bookseller whose books on mysticism are blamed for the suicide of a rabbi. The story begins, When I heard that Isaac Kornfield, a man of piety and brains, had hanged himself in the public park, I put a token in the subway stile and journeyed out to see the tree.

The Pagan Rabbi is about a rabbi who finds the divine (and destruction) in the worship of Nature. By turns funny, tragic, and corrosive. The Suitcase, a story of an émigré painter. You'll never think about Isaac Bashevis Singer the same way again.

Miss Ozick writes with the cutcrystal precision of Singer and the scouring tragic-ironic strengths of Malamud - exceptional stories al. Two stories deal with satanic manifestations: a rabbi is trapped by a naiad; an urbane lawyer is set upon by an enormous and fleshly sea nymph. In the most moving story, "The Doctor's Wife," a kind, passively dutiful bachelor of fifty, among a family of parasitical combatants, accepts the knowledge that "accommodation becomes permanence," too late for anything but a sere autumnal haze of gentle lies.

These are stories that Ozick published in the late 1960's and 1971. Despite the early date of composition, one can clearly see her brilliance in her writing style. Her ability to string words together in a line, on a page, makes her one of the finest articulationists in business today.

In particular, Ozick focuses on man's relationship to the spiritual world. And also, the manner in which these two worlds interact with each other. Often people seem to forget, that men and women who have a spiritual calling are also, just men and women. In addition it is sometimes forgotten; that regular men and women, sometimes may be very spiritual.

But that too is a subject for Ozick in her book, the difference between men and women, or in particular, the manner in which the world reacts to them. She examines this in interesting detail in her story "Virility." And within her story "The Doctor's Wife" she reveals a perfectly exquisite line "... that the worthlessness of everything was just what gave everything its worth" creates a unique perspective for the reader. It is interesting to consider life as being worthless, particularly in an existential manner, but can one also see, this very existential worthlessness truly imparts worth, not only denigrates that which seems to have none.

As always, the brilliance of Ozick's compositional ability cannot be ignored. This book is recommended for all who find beauty in the written word, when portrayed with such elegance.

This collection of short stories is written by one of my favorite authors, Cythia Ozick. Her book, The Shawl, is a brilliant and beautiful novella. These short stories do not disappoint. Like her other works, many have deal with philosophy and Jewish theology. They are more than just stories. They provide food for thought - - they are all works that will stay with the reader long after they are read. Some of my favorites from this collection are:

--The Pagan Rabbi
--Envy
--Yiddish in America
--The Suitcase

Anyone who likes to read literature of substance and enjoys short stories will appreciate this collection.

Not her best, for sure. I read some of the stories, but some just rambled on and on. Try her other fiction first.

Mr_Mole
There is no other story like "The Pagan Rabbi." It is both startling and poignant. And the characters are highly likable.

Used book (not Amazon) - appearance as advertized. Unfortunately, it has a moldy oder. Will probably NOT buy another used book for fear of the same problem.

Totally not a fan of her writing style. It's like Ozick tries to find every writing rule and break it just for the sake of breaking it, trying to somehow be "revolutionary," or "abstract." She rambles on and on, has no plot, no character ark, uses big words every other five seconds, leeches for empathy from the readers, tries to force her ideals on you, and to put it quite simply her writing is boring. Her characters have no voice, nor are they three-dimensional. A lot of people will say she's great, but I really don't think we should say that just because she's Jewish, and she's old. Critique her writing! Be honest! She's a bad writer. I read to be delighted, enlightened, and enthralled. I don't read to feel like I'm being indoctrinated. If her work was published now only a few would buy it. There's different strokes for different folks, but Ozick is not for me. She's an intellectual, but definitely not a writer.

From the first and second piece in this collection, the reader thinks that Ozick is a more Americanized version of Isaac Singer. But there are surprising twists along the way. The Pagan Rabbi is about a rabbi who finds the divine (and destruction) in the worship of Nature. Envy; or Yiddish in America, is a fine elegy of a language and the perils of translation. The Suitcase, a story of an émigré painter. The Dock Witch, a modern tale of a witch who sucks the vital essence of her men. The Doctor's Wife, a curious story of a man broken by remorse and fantasy. The Butterfly and the Traffic Light, a very short allegory of transformation and its dangers. And Virility, a tale of a set during and just after the First World War, but told through the lens of a one-hundred year old narrator who lives in a utopian future. Taken individually, the stories are not unique or surprising. Ozick's endings are conventional and fail to do justice to the strength behind. But the unconventional coupling of these stories when strung together make for excellent reading. Here the collection is stronger than its building blocks.

Demonstrating once more that Cynthia Ozick has an astonishing ability to capture accurately the secret desires, fears, and milieu of her characters. By turns funny, tragic, and corrosive. Worth buying for the story (or essay?) "Envy; or Yiddish in America" alone. You'll never think about Isaac Bashevis Singer the same way again.
