Does anyone know where I can find a recording of Shmuel Yosef Agnon's speech for winning the Nobel Prize?

  • Speaking of "midrash", can someone merge "drush" with "midrash" unless there is some good reason to keep them separate? Thanks!

    @WAF, I think of Midrash as a medieval body of work and drush as a genre that's been in use from then to now. Do you see them differently?

  • @Isaac is there a "transfer to meta" button for comments? May 17, 2011 at 12:12
  • @David I don't think so.

    @IsaacMoses - I suppose so. It's just not clear to me what "drush" as a genre refers to. Maybe somebody can write a tag wiki for it.

Yes, in the noble prize site: Shai Agnon's banquet speech (that's in Hebrew, and there's also a translation to English)

    I'm sorry, I didn't notice :( .... I'll leave my answer, though, just in case someone would like the written speech
