Reviews / Endorsements

“Betsy Rosenberg enchants and unsettles in poems that read like oracles syncopated with a variety of styles, from Persian moosiqi to Gilbert and Sullivan and jazz. Lyrical intimations, kabbalistic and biblical, classical Greek or Chinese sustain her night vigils and travels through time and space, reminding us that Jerusalem, the contentious city in which she lives, can become, like her poetry, a locus of mysterious concatenations and ever more vivid amazement.”—Gabriel Levin



BETSY ROSENBERG was born in Philadelphia in 1946. She studied at the Hebrew University and the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem where she has lived since 1967, supporting herself as a translator of Hebrew poetry and prose (including novels by David Grossman), editor, and musician.
