Stylistically and intellectually Shabtai is a poet of the first rank…. Cole’s versions are vivid poems in their own right.

Antioch Review

Shabtai’s poems have a wonderful almost vertiginous energy, an enormous erudition, and a startling, finally inspiring candor. Brilliantly translated by Peter Cole.
