Deuteronomy Party: Paper-Writing In The House
So I need to write a thesis on Deuteronomy. Specifically on a Hebrew-writing meforash (not Rashi, and it could be one of the maskilim) who wrote on Deuteronomy. I also have to read the book of Deuteronomy with that meforash. Obviously I want to get started on that now as opposed to later. Question to the world- can you recommend a more Midrash-like meforash who I will enjoy reading who wrote on Deuteronomy? I could do the Malbim but I already know his biography so that's not so exciting. Stuff that came to mind for me to look through: Netziv, Shadal. I'd love to do the Aznaim L'Torah (R' Zalman Sorotzkin) but he might be too modern for the purposes of this assignment. I think the Torah Temima might also be interesting but he might also not fit for this assignment...I shall have to see. Anyway: suggestions?
