Jacob's wound a search for the spirit of wildness

DAISY Sound Recording

The Genesis story of Jacob wrestling with the angel is interpreted here as a struggle between Jacob and his wilder twin brother, Esau. Jacob, the farmer, the civilized man, suffers a wound in vanquishing Esau, the hunter, the primitive man. Can we, as Jacob did with Esau, eventually reconcile with the wildness we conquered and have been estranged from for so long?
