Jerusalem, beloved

Jerusalem, beloved

ISBN: 9780888011961
Author: Di Brandt

In 1991, Di Brandt travelled to Jerusalem to visit a friend and to witness the Intifada of occupied Palestine. Her journey took her to a country rich with history mythology, and conflict. Here she writes about Jerusalem, imagined and real, and about home.

"Jerusalem has inspired some of the greatest writers, poets, and artists for millennia. In her poems about Jerusalem, Di Brandt has not only captured the stature and the magic of this timeless city with its many contradictions, but has articulated so well the pain and suffering of its inhabitants. She saw and heard the 'living stones'."
-Kathy Bergen, Executive Director, ICCP (International Coordinating Committee for Non-governmental Organizations on the Question of Palestine), Geneva.

Jerusalem, beloved was shortlisted for the Governor General's Award in 1995.
