I have elsewhere discussed how the great eleventh-century Hebrew poet Ibn Gabirol
"yoked together by violence" the Biblical Personal Creator with creation by emanation in one metaphysical conceit--by exploiting incompatible figurative potentials of "shadow" (Tsur, On the Shore 295; Poetic Conventions 138-40).
The final chapter of the book is devoted to Jewish philosophy, notably that of Avicebron (Solomon ibn Gabirol
) and Moses Maimonides.
In later periods, this distress appeared constantly in the writings of other masters of the Hebrew language, such as Shlomo ibn Gabirol
. He was the sublime poet, perhaps the most excellent among the excellent, and without any doubt one of the maximum connoisseurs of the Hebrew language having a mastery of it without equal.
The Andalusian poet and philosopher Solomon ibn Gabirol

Around 9:30 p.m., the main body of protesters split to two groups, with one group of some 300 leaving the crowd outside the Beit Ariela Library and making their way down Ibn Gabirol
Street towards Rabin Square.

and Judah Abravanel, in establishing one's place within the canon.
