Exalted for centuries as a hero and author of the Bible, Moses is inseparable from biblical tradition. Moses is also an inherently ambiguous figure and a perennial focus of controversy, from ancient disputes of priestly rivalry to modern issues of class, gender and race. In Rewriting Moses, Brian Britt analyzes elements of polemic and ideology in the Moses of the Bible, of film, novel, visual art and scholarship. He argues that the biblical Moses lives within writing, while the post-biblical Moses lives in biography. Yet later rewritings of Moses refract the biblical portrait in surprising ways. Rewriting Moses provides an original account of the Freudian insight that traditions preserve what they repress.
