From the Back Cover: Here is a monumental achievement in verse-the most representative work of 400 modern Jewish poets from over 40 nations, ranging from the U.S. and Canada to Israel and Eastern Europe to surprising corners of the world like Cuba, Wales, and Sri Lanka. The poems are expertly translated from more than 20 languages, such as Hebrew, Yiddish, French, German, and Russian, as well as authentically Jewish hybrid languages like Judeo-Romanesque and Judezmo. From Allen Ginsberg's "Kaddish" to Yehuda Amichai's "Lament," this is the most comprehensive collection of Jewish poets ever assembled--a vibrant expression of a great people's rapture and agony, history and lore.
