Jeremiah (Jeremiah) Jeremiah is the title character of a 1919 play by the Austrian born writer, Stefan Zweig. Inspired by the events of World War I, it employs the Biblical tale of the destruction of Jerusalem by the Assyrians to provide a lyrical anti-war platform. The defeat of the prophet Jeremiah is presented as a moral triumph: “You can kill a people but you cannot kill the god within them.”
Jeremiah de Saint-Amour (Love in the Time of Cholera) Although a minor character in Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ much heralded 1985 novel, “Love In The Time Of Cholera,” Jeremiah is, nonetheless, the character who opens the book. Dr. Urbino discovers his chess companion, Jeremiah, dead by suicide, and is led to ruminate on the nature of infirmity, aging, death, and love.
Reverend Jeremiah Brown (Inherit the Wind) Reverend Jeremiah Brown is a character in “Inherit The Wind,” the 1955 play by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, which fictionalizes the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial”, wherein John Scopes was put on trial in Tennessee for teaching the theory of evolution in high school. That historical incident stands in for the McCarthy Era, when the intellectual freedom of our entire nation was sorely tested. The Scopes character, Bertram Cates, is excoriated by the Reverend Jeremiah Brown as a sinner who is damned to hell, and he denounces his own daughter, Rachel, for her love for Cates. It is the defense attorney, Brady, who quotes from Proverbs in denunciation of Brown: "He that troubleth his own house, shall inherit the wind."
