This luminous collection gathers together for the first time in English a substantial body of poetry that emerges directly from the sublime and often startling world of Jewish mysticism.

Booklist called the volume “Resplendent…a dazzling treasury of verse spanning more than 1,500 years and accompanied by fascinating, illuminating, commentary rich in history, biography, and literary expertise.” The collection brings readers into the fascinating force field of Jewish mysticism and Kabbalistic verse, where the building blocks of both language and existence are unveiled.
