A quantity of the paths of the Pantheon - essays and studies

Aharon Ze’ev Ben-Yishi (1902-1977) was an in-depth researcher, an incisive and courageous publicist, an editor endowed with intellectual curiosity and a broad perspective, a poet with linguistic sensitivity, a gifted translator, an imaginative storyteller, with a fine clownish humor and a sharp and sophisticated sense of stinging satire. But usually, Ben Yishai navigated his extensive literary and public activity in secret. The dozens of pen names he chose for himself and his choice to remain in the shadow of his many actions will testify to this, the influence in the life of Hebrew literature. An extensive discussion of all these appears at the end of the book.
