""The Flower of Anarchy contains some of Meir Wieseltier's most fierce, angry, and beautiful poems. Wieseltier is the savage yet compassionate poet of Tel Aviv: a bold, tormented and playful poet of a bold, tortured and sexy city.""â¿¿Amos Oz ""The distinguished and gifted poet-translator Shirley Kaufman gives us Meir Wieseltier's poems as poetry. The vibrancy and momentum of these versions are extraordinary.""â¿¿Adrienne Rich ""We almost don't have this kind of poetry in Americaâ¿¿erotic, political, audacious, wise, brutal. I die that I can't share the Hebrew, but what the music is comes through, as well as the voice, the immense resonant voice. This book is a great gift.""â¿¿Gerald Stern ""A master-draftsman of Tel Aviv's bleaker landscapes, Meir Wieseltier is also a brutal observer of his society and its dominant myths. This gathering of the poet's work by Shirley Kaufman takes us into the dark heart of Wieseltier's verseâ¿¿from the peeling plaster and seamy sweatshops of Tel Aviv to the â¿¿dull khaki light' of the country's larger cultural prospect. All is here, in translations that faithfully convey both the harshness and clarity that have made Wieseltier one of the most influential Israeli poets of his time.""â¿¿Peter Cole, translator of Selected Poems of Solomon Ibn Gabirol and author of Hymns & Qualms ""Layered and nuanced in his poetic expression, and exceptionally gifted in his vivid, self-reflexive metaphors, Wieseltier is a poet of great poetic vision and verbal power. Working closely with the poet, Shirley Kaufman has turned this book into an authoritative volume of the work of Israel's leading living poet.""â¿¿Chana Kronfeld, author of On the Margins of Modernism: Decentering Literary Dynamics, and co-translator (with Naomi Seidman) of ""The First Day"" and Other Stories by Dvora Baron
