A Sea of Voices

By Marjorie Agosin

New Perspective on Israel
Through Women's Poetry

 

 
 



"Women Poets in Israel" is a uniquely original anthology that brings together the voices of fifty-one women poets living in Israel. Each writes in their native language as well as in Hebrew.

Included are poets from France, Spain, Iraq. Poland, and the USA, who write in French, Yiddish, Russian, Spanish/Ladino, Arabic, Polish, German, Hebrew, and English. With multiple poems from
each poet, this anthology, in which all the poems are translated into English, demonstrates the
diversity of women's poetry in Israel and shows the multifaceted multilingual experience of writers
living in an historically complex society. This mesmerizing and powerful collection evidences how
exile and diaspora enrich the poetic tradition of Israel. The book includes a section on women poets
who write in Arabic
.
