Some brief overview of this book

Here is the Genesis for our generation and beyond.—Robert Fagles

Genesis begins with the making of heaven and earth and all life, and ends with the image of a mummy—Josephs—in a coffin. In between come many of the primal stories in Western culture: Adam and Eves expulsion from the garden of Eden, Cains murder of Abel, Noah and the Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Abrahams binding of Isaac, the covenant of God and Abraham, Isaacs blessing of Jacob in place of Esau, the saga of Joseph and his brothers.

In Robert Alters brilliant translation, these stories cohere in a powerful narrative of the tortuous relations between fathers and sons, husbands and wives, eldest and younger brothers, God and his chosen people, the people of Israel and their neighbors. Alters translation honors the meanings and literary strategies of the ancient Hebrew and conveys them in fluent English prose. It recovers a Genesis with the continuity of theme and motif of a wholly conceived and fully realized book. His insightful, fully informed commentary illuminates the book in all its dimensions.
