The first English collection of poems by one of contemporary Hebrew's most innovative poets. Alternately Hellenic and Hebraic in his emphases, Schimmel is a bird-like arranger, a draftsman poet for whom memory is as physical as seeing, and seeing as complex and luxurious as a meal in all its stages. Introduction by Peter Cole.
"Harold Schimmel is an impeccable master of his art and as interesting a poet as one is likely to find in any language. His move from O'Hara's America to the complexities of daily Jerusalem makes him all the more wonderful and true!"
"The concrete image, the painterly patterning of detail, the apparent random unfolding of events … the pleasures of an earthly vision."
