Poems of Jerusalem ; And, Love Poems
A Bilingual EditionBook - 1992
Yehuda Amichai was born in Germany in 1924. His family left for Israel in 1936. Among the collections of his poetry that have appeared in English are Songs of Jerusalem & Myself, Travels, & The Selected Poetry of Yehuda Amichai. He presently lives & teaches in Jerusalem. "He is one of our great poets...once one has heard his quiet, even tones, precise, distanced & passionate, one never forgets them." "I, for one, return to his poetry again & again, & always find myself shaken, as by something truly genuine & alive."
