According to Rodger Kamenetz, Allen Afterman’s Kabbalah and Consciousness makes the major traditions of Jewish mysticism more clear and profoundly revealing than any other work on the subject. Elie Wiesel says, “Poetry and mysticism are magnificently reconciled in Allen Afterman’s book on Kabbalah’s secret imagery and silent invocations.” Here also is Afterman’s poetry, described by Yehuda Amichai as “an almost private religious poetry for our post-religious age.” The book includes an important interview with the author.

ALLEN AFTERMAN was born in Los Angeles in 1941. He studied at UCLA and Harvard Law School, and taught law in New Zealand, Australia, and Singapore. In 1972 he retired from teaching and devoted himself to poetry, publishing The Maze Rose (1974) and Purple Adam (1980). In 1980, he immigrated to Israel, where he lived until his death in 1992.
