Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Creating Fictional Worlds contains the table of contents and acknowledgements. This book is a based on Peshat-exegesis and narrativity in Rashbam's commentary on the Torah. This study suggests that the vernacular literature that fascinated French society fascinated the Jews as well, and puts forward the idea that Rashbam tried to compete with this new intellectual movement, claiming that the literary quality of the biblical texts was at least as good as that of the nascent courtly romances based on the matière de Bretagne, or even on a par with one another.

Keywords: Rashbam's commentary; Torah; vernacular literature
