Abstract:

"In English and in translation from many languages, more than 80 poets -- including Wiesel, Fink, [Sexton, Levi, Milosz, Plath, Spender, Gershon,] Brecht, Yevtushenko, Auden, and Sachs -- give voice to what seems unspeakable. Schiff points out that compelling historical accounts document the facts and numbers, but a poem, like a story, makes us imagine how it felt for one person. These poems are stark and deceptively simple." Booklist.
