   schema:description ""Cohen first presents an overview of Wallach's short life and surveys her critical reputation. Then, drawing on her own rich and varied background in Bible mythology, Hebrew language, and Poststructuralist and Postmodernist literacy and linguistic theory, Cohen traces Wallach's poetic corpus, translates and interprets representative examples of her works, and situates them within a variety of historical and literary contexts."--Jacket."@en ;
   schema:description "As Cohen demonstrates, her poetry is rooted in the poetic revolution in Israel during the 1950s and in many ways epitomizes the literary climate of her time. It also reflects the cultural crises that shook the academic world of the 1960s and the intellectual battles many artists fought with the "prison-house" of semiotic systems in which the human mind, they felt, was entrapped. Mysticism, religion and prophecy, passion, genius, sex and madness are only some of the terms associated with this woman and her poetic art, which one critic has called a "unique combination of elements of rock and roll, Jungian psychology and street slang, break-neck pace and insistent sexuality."""@en ;
