Of the numerous traditions that the Mexican writer Esther Seligsonadapts in La morada en el tiempo (1981), which spans Jewish history fromthe creation to the second part of the twentieth century, the present analysisfocuses on prophetic communication. This study puts forward a readingthat shows that many passages in Morada could be considered examples ofprophetic discourse. Not only does Morada include modified versions of theprophets’ stories, the central speaker also constitutes an updated figure ofthe prophet. At the same time, the speaker examines the meaning of silencein human-divine communications.Keywords: poetic prose, Esther Seligson, prophetic literature, Mexicanliterature, Spanish American Jewish writers
