Read The rape of Tamar review ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF × Dan Jacobson Dan Jacobson × 8 Read & Download Dan Jacobson retells the age old biblical story of the rape of King David’s daughter by her brother Amn. This book leapt off the dusty top shelf at me just after I d heard a sermon on the rape of Tamar from our female church minister who had focused on Tamar having been told to keep her mouth shut and the same thing happening to women down the ages It struck me the idea not the book that the version I had was probably going to have a different focus as it was written by a man It did It is a satire of court and political life The voice is that of a disenchanted courtier who is ambitious for his own ends and plays on what seem to him the contemptible weaknesses of those around him in order to increase his own political and social standing He s not likeable but neither is anyone else in the book King David has always interested me and Dan Jacobson does full justice to the complexities of his character The book is also a psychological study probably fairly typical of its era published in 1970 The detail and description are excellent despite the distance in time and place of the action I really felt at times that I was present at David s court Why did I give it four stars rather than five I think because I didn t find it an enlightening or uplifting book in any way The narrator Yonadab matches cunning with intelligence and cynicism with perspicacity but he doesn t inspire He s the guy you really don t want to get to know He s near at hand though he addresses us directly right the way through As an enduring ghost you might say a condemned spirit he s kindly elucidating for us a story that s always given rise to curiosity and speculation Tamar doesn t get much of a look in but when she does he doesn t spare her from his acid tongue lashing His narrative is interspersed with clever though often sarcastic snippets of social or psychological observations such as this It really is very ironic Ambitious people are those who are determined to secure for themselves exemption from the humiliations and misfortunes that others simply have to endure as best they can Yet once the ambitious have achieved power and position they and their families become not less exposed to temptation to error to disastrous reversals of fortune Hence in the end all they succeed in turning themselves into are great exemplars of the ordinary overwhelming instances of the commonplaceWe don t escape either we voyeurs of three thousand years later Here he goes Must I flatter the notion that you like to have of your difference from the miserable weightless rabble who crowd the spaceless chambers and corridors of the dead Not as long comrades as you cling to that very belief in your difference from us which is no than a manifestation of your particular style of self importance And so on I wasn t sorry to say goodbye to Yonadab but he leaves us with a flourish bringing in to take a bow King David and his faithful priest Abiathar For me it was like finding an old friend as I ve written about Abiathar Good to find a decent man at the end of this sordid tale
