"I particularly admire in Barbara Goldberg the inventiveness of her mind and the brilliant assurance of her craft."
"Her poems come of a nature simultaneously erotic, austere, and of good will. It may be said of Goldberg, as it has been said of Shakespeare, that a dirty mind is a perennial resource."
Scorched by the Sun
A new collection of poems by Israeli poet Moshe Dor. These poems, artfully translated by Barbara Goldberg, speak to hamatzav, the “situation.” The conflict, elections, the latest scandal— Israel is always in the midst of a “situation.” It is an ever-present fact of Israeli life, the backdrop against which all emotions and endeavors are projected. This is also a book about love—love for a woman, love for a motherland.
