ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "Raquel, the Jewess of Toledo," by Lion Feuchtwanger. During his long and productive career as novelist Feuchtwanger has returned again and again to two main themes, one is the interplay of different civilizations, the other, more specific, the tragic role of the Jewish people in this intermingling of cultures. This same clash between conflicting views of life and the tensions produced by the claims of nearly incompatible faiths are in Feuchtwanger's latest book. The plot is simple enough but a bare outline of the design gives little indication of the skill which Feuchtwanger brings it to life.
