Synopsis

The Selected Poetry Of Yehuda Amichai by Yehuda Amichai

Yehuda Amichai is Israel's most popular poet as well as a literary figure of international reputation. In this revised and expanded collection, renowned translators Chana Bloch and Stephen Mitchell have selected Amichai's most beloved and enduring poems, including forty new poems from his recent work. from Tourists:Once I was sitting on the steps near the gate at David's Citadel and I put down my two heavy baskets beside me. A group of tourists stood there around their guide, and I became their point of reference. You see that man over there with the baskets? A little to the right of his head there's an arch from the Roman period. A little to the right of his head. But he's moving, he's moving! I said to myself: Redemption will come only when they are told, Do you see that arch over there from the Roman period? It doesn't matter, but near it, a little to the left and then down a bit, there's a man who has just bought fruit and vegetables for his family.
