    Abba Kovner is considered to be one of the greatest Israeli poets, and after reading this collection, it's not hard to see why. Every poem is coloured by the Shoah and his survival of it; you can see the passion of the man who wrote the Vilnius Ghetto manifest, as well as the man who lived in the forests as a partisan. I understand that his involvement with the Nakam colours some people's perception of him and, consequently, his work, as well as what he wrote while in the IDF. But there's no mistaking his passion for the Jewish people and his words, which will live long past his untimely death of cancer, attest to that. Highly recommended.
