Born in northern Spain sometime before 1075, Yehuda Halevi was the preeminent Hebrew poet of 12-century Andalusia and author of the religious treatise The Book of the Kuzari. In 1140 he set out on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The poems of ON THE SEA, braiding scriptural quotation and a more personal voice, record the poet's perilous voyage to Alexandria, from whence Halevi would depart for Jerusalem -on which voyage he disappeared.
