Poetry. Jewish Studies. Middle Eastern Studies. Translated from the Hebrew by Barbara Goldberg. Moshe Dor's poems breathe, smell and taste like Israel. They express the pressures of living in a land constantly under siege, where hope and terror live side by side, where there is a fierce hatred of war and a fierce craving for peace. Here current events unfold in biblical landscapes. This is also a book about love—the love for a woman as well as a motherland. Cover art by Mordechai Ardon.
