In Bathsheba’s Levantine Bouquet, BarbaraHantman captures the Jewish calendar holiday cycle in the opening chapter, "Days of Smiles and Tears." Chapters on "Hebrew Heritage" and "The Sacred Tongue" boast linguistic riches of eight bilingual Hebrew-English poems. "Soaring Minds, Heaving Hearts" rhapsodizes over such eminences as Moses, Solomon, Halevi , Maimonides, Spinoza, Emma Lazarus, C.N. Bialik and Hanna Senesh. "For the Kinder" sings the praises of Thomas the Tank Engine, while "Love' s Lessons" concludes with mature love 's lyrical reveries, wistful childhood remembrance, homage to Triangle Shirtwaist victims and an altruistic "Prayer for Japan and the World."
