Baghdad, February 1991 & Other Poems

Baghdad, February 1991 is a moving evocation of the lives spent in the times
of love and war.

Reading renowned Hebrew poet Ronny Someck can be an intriguing experience.

Here are poems of controlled rage and tender love, unleashing hidden fears and angst of a nation living in the shadow of endless violence and bloodshed.

The distinguished poet Yuyutsu RD Sharma for the first time translates a major Hebrew voice into Nepali, transporting Ronny’s poetic splendor to Himalayas.

The book is a celebration of the Hebrew poet’s Whitmanseque extension of the line that takes a magical twist, leaving the readers breathless.

“Reading Ronny Someck’s fascinating 
work, I came upon ‘Bliss’, a poem that can serves 
as a wedding toast throughout the world”. Wislawa Szymborska
