As Long As We Are Not Alone: Selected Poems

by Israel Emiot, trans. Leah Zazulyer.


"If a great poet, as Randall Jarrell once suggested, is someone who manages, in a lifetime of standing out in thunderstorms to be struck by lightning a couple of times, then Israel Emiot is certainly one of the great poets of the 20th Century."
--Ilya Kaminsky
