About the Book

Genres Mélange Deuxième─Humor, Word Play, Personae, Sonnets, Art, Fiction, Memoirs, Reconstructing Judaism, Reviews, Interpretation, Genealogy contains, besides Art, writings in ten different categories, at least six of which are clearly genres. Many categories contain respective elements of others. This work, a sequel to “Edward’s Humor” and More and Genres Mélange, features the innovations of “Prompt-Based Pieces” (comprising exposition, fiction, and memoirs), “Genealogy,” and a “Literary Memoir.” The writings in the book range from Scripture to Talmud to Shakespeare to discussion about modern authors. The book features guest contributors─wife Reva Spiro Luxenberg Levenson, brother Robert Levenson, daughter Aliza Levenson, sons Judah and Benjamin Levenson, friends Joe Bruno and Jack Cohen, and mentor Rabbi Sylvan Kamens.


About the Author

EDWARD R. LEVENSON graduated from Boston Latin School in 1959 and from Harvard, in Classics, in 1963. He received from Brandeis, in 1972, a Ph.D. in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and taught Judaica and Religion on the college level from 1972 to 1987. From 1987 to 2012, high-school teaching─of Latin and Social Studies─in South Bend and Mishawaka, Indiana, and in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, became his forte. His relocation from Philadelphia to Delray Beach, Florida, has facilitated the development of his writing career. A great impetus for him has been his becoming a Contributing Writer for the Kings Point News and participant in the Kings Point Writers Club and Wiseman Center Creative Writers Workshop. He is active at Temple Anshei Shalom (Conservative) and Congregation Kol Ami (Reconstructing Judaism). The love of his life is Reva Spiro Luxenberg Levenson, prolific author and “eshet ḥayyil” (woman of valor) extraordinaire.
