Description

In this week’s episode, we will consider Israeli Love poetry through the lens of Barbara Goldberg’s new book, Transformation: The Poetry of Translation, which has just come out this year, after winning the Valentin Krustev Award for Translation. Goldberg calls her volume “a small anthology of Israeli poets writing on love and war.” Among the 62 poets represented, nearly all are alive and currently writing today. She says of them, that they “are men and women, old and young, natives of Israel and foreign born, secular and religious, straight and gay; each, in his or her individual way, represents Israel and reflects the diversity of its faces.” Text: Barbara Goldberg, Transformation: The Poetry of Translation. Poet’s Choice, 2019.
