Questions – Enemies, A Love Story, Isaac Bashevis Singer

  1. The title includes the word Enemies, why?
  2. Relation to Judaism by major characters, Herman attempts to reform, Yadviga converts, Rabby employs a ghostwriter, etc.
  3. Characters escaping from reality
  4. Herman’s character somehow reminds of some of the Checkov’s characters, philistines.
  5. In some ways the three wives situation and Herman’s inability to deal with it was comic.
