Editors' Picks
Art from the Right? Margot Lurie, Jewish Review of Books. Eliaz Cohen's poems are far from an example, let alone a vindication, of right-wing art.
"A Radio Check with God" Alan Brill, Book of Doctrines and Opinions. Foremost among Israel's new cohort of religious Zionist poets, Eliaz Cohen writes verse that is at once political and lyrical, rooted in both Arabic and the biblical core of Jewish literature.
