    1. These are fine, stirring poems, steeped in Old Testament weirdness that Ravikovitch somehow magically makes relevant and piercing. She was apparently a huge fan of the hapax l. The later poems tend to be much more literal and politically focused (she was a peace activist and champion of Palestinian rights) or autobiographical (her son), and I liked those far less. The exhaustive footnotes are often intrusive and distracting, too, but can't stop the works themselves from being outright phenomenal [...]


    2. This translation was absolutely horrid. In anthologies the syntax bonds well together when reading Ravikovich, but this was an utter Fail. At least I got a get a good dose of Ravikovich's genius in the anthologies.
