7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Yuval Ben- Amnon,MD. on June 16, 2000
Format: Paperback
This is one of Amos Oz's earlier works and the reader can already notice his amazing skill with words. The book contains two stories: The first one takes place in Medieval Europe and tells the story of a crusade that begins after several ominous events spread through the villages.With his unique language Oz leads the reader through the crusade that soon becomes a horrifying descent into the darkest pits of human cruelty, primal fears and blind violence and torture unto the eventual tragic ending of the novella. The second story describes the small, uneventful life of a lonely old man and his fantasies - about the nurse in the outpatient clinic, about an Israeli military force to be sent back in time to take revenge from the Nazis etc. Reading this early book exposes the reader to Oz's virtuoso ability with words that can either pound like a sledgehammer or flutter on one's face like the wind from a butterfly's flight

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Eric Maroney on March 26, 2008
Format: Paperback
Compared to some of Oz's other works, the two novellas in Unto Death are a bit flat. The first novella, Crusade, represents a type of work in Oz's corpus usually reserved for historical fiction, and exhibiting the grotesque to the exclusion of all else. In the very least, this novella shows Oz's debt to Christianity (oddly, there is a strong Christian vein in nearly all of Oz's fiction). The second novella, Late Love, is another semi-grotesque tale about an unhinged speaker for the kibbutz movement who is marginalized at every turn, but especially by his own mind. Unfortunately, the story does not rise up to the high water mark of excellence which Oz has established for himself.
