Writing on immigrants, refugees and concrete outcasts following the nerve-racking occasions of the 1st global conflict and the Civil warfare in Russia, his poetry constitutes a fusion of Modernist eu poetry with biblical and rabbinic resources with the affects of Georg Trakl and Rimbaud.

By Stefan Zweig
Dopo los angeles distruzione del tempio e il saccheggio della città, nel 70 d.C., fu portata a Roma, in trionfo da Tito insieme agli altri tesori trafugati agli ebrei, un bottino talmente prezioso da essere raffigurato sull’Arco dell’imperatore.
Per anni il candelabro fu conservato insieme con le altre spoglie della prima
guerra giudaica, finché a Roma arrivarono i Vandali di Genserico che ne fecero ancora bottino di guerra portandola a Cartagine, di nuovo in trionfo. Ma solo
finché Giustiniano non riuscì a recuperarla in line with trasferirla a Bisanzio, poi chissà...
Stefan Zweig racconta il suo vagare come metafora stessa del popolo errante,
pochi anni prima di porre fantastic alla propria esistenza di esiliato, in fuga dall’oppressione nazista.
In una scintillante postfazione Fabio Isman si mette a sua volta alla ricerca della
Menorah in line with scoprire che potrebbe trovarsi ancora a Roma...
Roma, 455 d.C.: durante il saccheggio i Vandali trafugano come bottino di
guerra l. a. Menorah (l’antico candelabro a sette braccia) del Tempio di Gerusalemme, portata a Roma da Tito. Tra l. a. comunità ebraica si diffonde ungrande scoramento: il simbolo più antico, il fondamento stesso dell’identità del popolo ebraico è andato perduto e deve essere recuperato a ogni costo. Con il suo stile cristallino Stefan Zweig ricostruisce una vicenda che è in line with molti versi un vero e proprio mito fondativo del popolo ebraico, e poco importa se a volte il suo racconto ceda il passo alla leggenda. “Le leggende fiorite sulla scomparsa della Menorah sono quasi limitless” si legge nella postfazione di Fabio Isman.
“E tutte, come anche il racconto di Stefan Zweig, hanno un unico obiettivo: mantenerla in vita.”
