Illustrated cover (detail from Jerusalem by D. Henry)/NF w/trace creasing to lower front corner. Anthology of poems, selected by poet Yehuda Amichai (1924 - 2000) himself and thought them to be among his best works. Originally written in Hebrew. The poems are presented in two parts. Part I, poems written between 1955 to 1968, with translation by Stephen Mitchell. Part II, those written from 1971 through 1985, translated by Chana Bloch. Born in Germany, Yehuda Amichai moved to Palestine when he was twelve. In 'Jews in the Land of Israel' written about 1971, he writes: "We forget where we came from. Our Jewish/names from the Exile give us away/. Circumcision does it to us/As in the Bible story of Shechem and the sons of Jacob/so we go on hurting all our lives/.What are we doing coming back to all this pain?/.What are we doing/in this dark land with its/yellow shadows that pierce the eyes?/.What are we doing with these souls of mist, with these names/with our eyes of forests, with our beautiful children/with our quick blood?/Spilled blood is not the roots of trees/but it is the closest thing to roots/we have." A song from the soul. Yehuda Amichai is Israel's leading poet, and one of the most outstanding voices of our time. Fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 001386
