Hovering at a Low Altitude

The Collected Poetry of Dahlia Ravikovitch

Dahlia Ravikovitch (Author), Chana Bloch (Translator), Chana Kronfeld (Translator)


“[Ravikovitch’s] poems hum their messages like tuning forks. . . . [She] reaches visionary heights.”—Margot Lurie, New Criterion

Dahlia Ravikovitch, who died in 2005, was one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary Hebrew literature and the Israeli peace movement. In these poems about fathers and daughters, men and women, kings and their subjects, she articulates the painful asymmetries of power. The extraordinary stylistic range of her poetry reveals her mastery of the verbal art.
