Wolfson is the author of several critical books on medieval Jewish mysticism. On Wings of Moonlight focuses on the poetic nature of Wolfsons works through an exploration of his poems, many of which appear in Pathwings: Philosophic and Poetic Reflections on the Hermeneutics of Time and Language. Barbara Galli argues that Wolfsons poems resonate with a kabbalistic worldview that is also reflected in his scholarly work and personal life. On Wings of Moonlight - a phrase taken from one of the poems - illuminates the poetic and philosophic kinship between Wolfson, Franz Rosenzweig, one of his influences since graduate school, and Paul Celan. Displaying a deep knowledge of the literary, philosophical, Jewish, and feminist traditions informing Wolfsons academic work, Galli argues that his prose cannot be fully appreciated without consideration of its poetic dimensions.
