Open closed open : poems by Yehuda Amichai( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 522 libraries worldwide
Amichai writes of the language of love, and tea with roasted almonds, of desire and love. Of a Jewish cemetery whose groundskeeper is an expert on flowers and seasons of the year, but no expert on buried Jews; of Russian shirts embroidered in the colors of love and death; of Jerusalem, the city where everything sails: the flags, the prayer shawls, the caftans, the monks' robes, the kaffiyehs, and young women's dresses. The poet tenderly, mischievously, breaks open the grand diction of the revered Jewish verses and supplications and suddenly discovers the light that his own experience casts upon them. Here, the bread of memory and the circuses of forgetting, nostalgia for God and a better world, dust and heat, and tamarisk trees that stand as flight attendants for the next millennium, saying, "You can still get a seat on the third millennium before liftoff." Open Closed Open-poems at once meditative and playful, anxious and full of hope, sung in a language of biblical directness and meaning, that through the microcosm of the everyday give us the gift of the world at large

Mrs. Dumpty by Chana Bloch( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
"Mrs. Dumpty is a riveting memoir-in-verse about "a great fall," the dissolution of a long and loving marriage. Chana Bloch's poems speak with candor and compassion, and without a trace of self-pity, about the familiar strains in a marriage of many years - aging, dependency, the erosion of feeling - as compounded by the ravages of a spouse's mental illness. She writes not only about horrors like electroshock therapy but about the after-shocks of history as well - in this case, the trauma of Hitler's Germany, which continues to take its toll." "These poems, remarkable for their precision of language and the power of their imagery, are shot through with humor and wit even at their most tragic."--Jacket
