A collection of stirring poems translated from Hebrew that relate a voice in the current state of society in Israel. No Sign of Ceasefire: An Anthology of Contemporary Israeli Poetry features the work of eleven distinguished poets. Translated from Hebrew, their poems address issues--great and trivial--of modern life in a country that struggles to survive. Like the poets who proceeded them, these writers contemplate isolation and national identity with individual voices. They also ponder lust, spirituality, family, the Arab-Israeli conflict, nature, sexuality, science, and history, and provide a thought-provoking exploration of contemporary Israeli society.
