My Little Sister and Selected Poems, 1965-1985
The title sequence is justly famous as one of the major pieces of literature to come out of the Holocaust. It appears here with a new selection of Abba Kovner's work spanning his forty-plus years as one of Israel's leading poets. The noted American-Israeli poet Shirley Kaufman had the privilege of working directly with Kovner on these versions in the years before his death.
