Poets Sandra Gilbert & Shirley Kaufman
(right) presents her latest collection of poetry, Belongings.
"These powerful, graceful poems evoke a world of intense
contradictions. Place is made real, with a sensuous exactitude, but
only so as to serve a beautiful crisis of displacement....." - Eavan
Shirley Kaufman presents her new bilingual selection of poems Un
Abri pour nos têtes, reading with her translator Claude
Vigée, who was awarded the Grand Prix de poésie de
l'Académie française in 1996.
"Shirley Kaufman started her life over again
in Israel in 1973....the poems are made even more poignant by current
events. These lucid, lyrical poems have a powerful exactitude." -
"Shirley Kaufman...lives directly and intensely in language...granting
her the unpredictable, the magic, that which cannot be sought, only
has duende." - Denise Levertov
