The international reputation of Yehuda Amichai, one of Israel's leading authors, continues to grow, and this new collection of his poems is certain to add to his stature and popularity in America. Great Tranquility is Amichai's most powerful collection since Amen (1977). Many of the poems derive from the experience and awareness of a man in middle life---Israeli soldier, veteran, citizen, husband, father, Jew---his consciousness seasoned by the complex feelings of the long view of life and deepened by the political, military and moral crises that have beset his country. This is poetry that presents the "still, sad music of humanity" with a modern Jewish tone and a spare but intimate idiom.
