Overview

One half of this volume collects four decades of poetry of Isidore Century, until now published only in journals and chapbooks.

Century's poems recall growing up during the Depression to Yiddish immigrant parents; his coming to terms with the scars of his youth; his adult discovery of Jewish traditions and Jerusalem; and his continuing game of hide-and-seek with God.

The other half of this volume, Poems of the Weekly Torah Portion, are sly imaginings of each weekly Torah portion, from Genesis through Deuteronomy.
