Excellent, well explained, collection of Hebrew Poems,
This review is from: Wine, Women, and Death: Medieval Hebrew Poems on the Good Life (Paperback)
This is a thought-provoking collection of poems that shattered many of my pre-conceptions of the Sephardim. The poems are arranged in a well organized sections with helpful explanations as to their context and substance. This book gives an exciting glimpse of a culture and a way of life that disappeared from the Iberian peninsula some 500 years' ago.
