Revisiting Golem: An Exploration into Three Illustrated Narratives for Children

Danya David

Abstract


The legend of the Golem is a medieval tale with its roots in ancient Hebrew script and Jewish lore. This paper examines how three illustrated books reveal similar and different interpretations of the same story. Danya David analyses both text and image to explore essential themes, and demonstrates how the three versions fundamentally expound the validity and relevance of the legend of Golem for today.
