9780815634195: Bridging the Divide: The Selected Poems of Hava Pinhas-Cohen (Judaic Traditions in Literature, Music, and Art)

Raised in a Ladino-speaking family of Bulgarian Jewish immigrants, Pinhas-
Cohen fuses the ancient Sephardic chant of her childhood with the contemporary
rhythm of Israeli life. This singular talent for bridging the ancient and the
modern sets her apart from most other Hebrew poets of her generation. Secular
in style and spirit, yet rooted in the life cycle of religious Judaism, Pinhas-
Cohen’s poems portray everyday life in modern Israel through a sacred yet
personal language. Awarded the coveted Prime Minister’s Prize for her poetry,
Pinhas-Cohen is a poet whose verse in English translation is long overdue. This
bilingual collection offers readers a careful selection of poems from each of her
seven published volumes. Hart-Green has worked closely with the poet herself
on these translations, several of which have appeared in journals such as the
Jewish Quarterly and the Toronto Journal of Jewish Thought. Her lively translations
display the dazzling breadth and depth of Pinhas-Cohen’s oeuvre, making
Bridging the Divide not only the first but the definitive English-language edition
of this vital Hebrew poet’s work.
