This Horizon and Beyond
Included are poems from Rotstein's travels through China as one of the first Westerners to enter that country after the Cultural Revolution; evocative and stirring images from her travels in Greece, Italy, Japan, and Israel; and an emotionally charged cycle of poems that--written over a 20-year period and purposely held for publication as a unit--capture the changing stages in a family's life. Her other enduring themes include history, nature, and ecology. Throughout are colourful and insightful poem-portraits of people and incisive portrayals of historical events--among them selections that contemplate Israel and the Holocaust.

"Her imagination, her keen eyes and ears are very much her own.... Even if her lines were arranged like prose they would still be poetry."
