The Midrash on Proverbs, a ninth-century collection of rabbinical commentary on the Book of Proverbs, is now available to English-speaking audiences for the first time. Burton L. Visotzky here provides a lucid translation of the work from his annotated critical edition of the Hebrew text, Midrash Mishle.Reviews"One of the best translations of rabbinic literature that I have come across in recent years--precise, elegant, and highly readable."--David Stern"... reads well, beautifully in fact; it looks good; and it comes with pages of notes that will make many things clearer ... an important addition to the Jewish bookshelf."--Lewis Glinert, HaMaor"An important addition to the Jewish bookshelf."--Lewis Glinert, HaMaor"Midrash Mishle is a watershed in midrashic literature, for it marks the point at which broader forms of classical Midrash on the Scriptures gave way to verse-by-verse commentary. ... Visotzky's volume is illuminating for the scholar and non-specialist alike in a prose translation that mirrors the style of the original."--Menorah Review"[A] literate and thoroughly idiomatic annotated translation of the text. ... Students of rabbinic literature are in Visotzky's debt for his careful studies of Midrash Mishle. This translation gracefully renders the work accessible to a larger readership."--Richard S. Sarason, Hebrew Studies
