Description

The Jewish poets of medieval Spain combined elements of the dominant Arabic-Islamic culture with Jewish religious and literary traditions to create a rich new Hebrew literature that is as richly entertaining today as it was in the twelfth century. Scheindlin presents the original Hebrew poetry with his own melodic English translations, each followed by commentary that explains its cultural context.show more
