Chana Bloch is the author of four books of poetry: The Secrets of the Tribe, The Past Keeps Changing, Mrs. Dumpty, and Blood Honey. She is also the co-translator of The Song of Songs, The Selected Poetry of Yehuda Amichai, and Hovering at Low Altitude: The Collected Poetry of Dahlia Ravikovitch.Review:
These poems of intimate memory and sure-handed imagination survey the human condition with a tender, compassionate, and unflinching gaze. They take place in the world of the daily -- they eat, dress, make love, ponder, remember, mourn, and observe. They know some things about life that are hard to put into words, and for those things, they find words, and more. Chana Bloch's poems carry their reader into a hard-won, music-ripened wisdom. --Jane Hirshfield, citation for Poetry Society of America Alice Fay di Castagnola Award
