The Fullness of Time

Gershom Gerhard Scholem, Author, Richard Sieburth, Translator, Steven M. Wasserstrom, Introduction by Ibis Press $13.95 (76p) ISBN 978-965-90125-3-4
A great scholar and loyal friend to Walter Benjamin (who is addressed here), Gershom Scholem wrote strong poetry. Presented in the original German with excellent facing-pace translations from PEN translation award-winner Richard Sieburth and with an introduction by Reed College professor of Judaic Studies and Humanities Steven M. Wasserstrom, the 21 poems of The Fullness of Time ask ""Lord, grant that he may awake/ whom your absence has erased.""
