Alternatives to History
Jay Ladin

Poetry / History / Judaism

Jay Ladin is a devotional poet who is also blasphemous, sometimes simultaneously. What he most surely opposes is cant. The "alternatives to history" that he examines – more accurately, celebrates – have to do with God, ethics, kabbalah, current events, happiness and absolution. His poetry offers a personal view of the big truths. Readers will find, having finished this extraordinary first book, that Ladin has explained what we did not know that we did not know. The fact is, through his poetry Ladin does the reader a favor, a great courtesy. He makes our lives more valuable.
