Poetry Friday: Dancing up a Storm

June 12, 2009

Great poem up at WVFC, by Karen Alkalay-Gut.

karenagBorn in London on the last night of the Blitz, Karen Alkalay-Gut has been living and writing out in the open ever since. She was reared in Rochester, NY where she received her PhD. from the University of Rochester. She has lived and worked in Israel since 1972 where she has a family and a career as a writer both in English and Hebrew, as well as a translator into French, German, Italian, Romanian, Russian, Spanish and Polish. Her 31-page curriculum vitae details a rich and ranging intellectual life and career; it is clear that it would take more reams of paper than that to contain what her heart knows.

Read her poem for today’s Poetry Friday here.

A previous poem, “Why I don’t write formal verse” can be found on May 28th’s Poetry Friday.
