Poetry. Jewish Studies. Translated by Peter Cole. Introduced by Hannan Hever. Avraham Ben Yitzhak, also known as Abraham Sonne, was a Galicia-born, Berlin-and-Vienna-bred Hebrew writer who fled Europe for Palestine in the late thirties. In a career lasting decades, he published only eleven poems, yet he is considered today one of Hebrew's most important and original poets. "[His work] had been compared to Holderlin's by persons versed in both languages--only a very few, hymnlike poems, perhaps less than a dozen, but they were of such perfection that he had been numbered among the masters of the newly revived language"--Elias Canetti.
