William Kolbrener

William Kolbrener’s newest book, Open Minded Torah: Of Irony, Fundamentalism and Love was published by Continuum in 2011. An American born writer and scholar, with degrees from Oxford and Columbia, Kolbrener lives in Jerusalem and is a professor of English Literature at Bar Ilan University in Israel. His ‘Letter from Israel’ appears regularly in the ‘On Faith’ section of the Washington Post. His Milton’s Warring Angels, an internationally acclaimed work on the author of Paradise Lost, was published by Cambridge University Press in 1997, and he co-edited a volume on the British proto-feminist Mary Astell Ashgate in 2008. Kolbrener has written in major scholarly journals in literature, history, theology, psychoanalysis, and cultural criticism. He has also written on Jewish topics in the Jewish Daily Forward, the Jerusalem Post, the Jewish Review of Books and many other Jewish publications. His new voice is emerging as one of the most compelling of the generation.
