Creator, Are You Listening? : Israeli Poets on God and Prayer Hardback
Part of the Jewish Literature and Culture series
In an anthology that is both scholarly and accessible to readers of contemporary poetry, David C.
Jacobson examines the search for God in the work of six prominent Israeli poets-Yehuda Amichai, Admiel Kosman, Rivka Miriam, Zelda Mishkovsky, Hava Pinhas-Cohen, and Asher Reich. In the book's introduction, Jacobson explores the central role that poetry has always played and continues to play in our understanding of the religious experience.
The work of each poet is then preceded by an introduction which establishes the historical and biographical contexts of the poems discussed.
The poetry appears in the original Hebrew as well as Jacobson's graceful English translations.
