Selected Poems
Hamutal Bar-Yosef
Translated by Rachel Tzvia Back

“A reasonably discerning reader of Hamutal Bar-Yosef in translation will find that although her poems are written about her life, which has been tragic and sometimes glorious, Israel, the Jews and their culture, what it means to be alive, the world—all very big subjects—her writing is such that if she were writing about a soap bubble she would be immediately recognizable as a great poet.”
