Thistles: Selected Poems of Esther Raab
Poetry. Jewish Studies. Translated and introduced by Harold Schimmel. Esther Raab was the first native-born Israeli woman poet and an important if often-overlooked figure in the emerging literature of the Hebrew language. Her work, marked by its strong voice and idiosyncratic rhythms, is painterly in its direct apprehension of her physical surroundings. Translator Harold Schimmel's selection conveys what he calls the "strange intensities" and "astounding propinquities" of a singular writer. "One of the most innovative and revolutionary poets to appear in Hebrew poetry since the First World War"--Dan Miron.
