From the Back Cover:

 

[backad for Weinberger, Twilight of a Golden Age] “Abraham ibn Eza was one of the most important scholars in Spain during the 12th century, and the author of many books on philosophy, biblical commentaries, astronomy, Hebrew grammar, and mathematics. He was also the first to realize the need to translate the theoretical works of Jewish scholars in Al-Andalus from Arabic to Hebrew. As a sage-teacher he wandered all over Spain, Italy, France, and England, where, according to certain researchers, he died.“Ibn Ezra is generally considered one of the most famous Jewish poets, his writing representing the Hebrew-Spanish culture in the Middle Ages as exemplified in Twilight of the Golden Age... Unlike many other areas of Jewish studies, Hebrew poetry in general and Hebrew medieval poetry in particular, are hardly known to non-Hebrew readers. The publication of the selected poems of such an important writer is therefore very welcome.” – Jewish Culture and History “Weinberger offers the reader a rare opportunity to become intimately acquainted with... Abraham ibn Ezra, [who] also was known and admired in the non-Jewish world, and has been immortalized in Robert Browning’s ‘Rabbi Ben Ezra.’ Weinberger is to be commended for making his poetry available in English, and for authoring a most valuable introduction to ibn Ezra’s life and work.” – Menorah Review  Other titles by Leon J.
