Timely Content

I was reading Herman Melville’s epic poem “Clarel,” which describes a 19th-century journey through the Holy Land, when the Winter 2021 issue of BAR arrived. I was pleasantly surprised to find two places Melville describes featured: the Tomb of the Kings in Jerusalem (Andrew Lawler, “Who Built the Tomb of the Kings?”) and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem (“Where Is It?”). Reading the BAR descriptions and seeing the photographs added to my enjoyment of Melville’s challenging poem.
