Poetry. The first English collection of poems by one of contemporary Hebrew's most innovative poets. Alternately Hellenic and Hebraic in his emphases, Schimmel is a bird-like arranger, a draftsman poet for whom memory is as physical as seeing, and seeing as complex and luxurious as a meal in all its stages. Introduction by Peter Cole. "Harold Schimmel is an impeccable master of his art and as interesting a poet as one is likely to find in any language. His move from O'Hara's America to the complexities of daily Jerusalem makes him all the more wonderful--and true!"--Robert Creeley.
