"[Ravikovitch’s] song is both ancient and new, and it is unutterably poignant." ―Stanley Kunitz In poems about fathers and daughters, men and women, kings and their subjects, the precarious position of women and the plight of Palestinians under the Occupation, Dahlia Ravikovitch articulates the painful asymmetries of power. The extraordinary stylistic range of her poetry reveals her mastery of the verbal art. from “Clockwork Doll”I was a clockwork doll, but thenThat night I turned round and aroundAnd fell on my face, cracked on the ground,And they tried to piece me together again.Then once more I was a proper dollAnd all my manner was nice and polite.But I became damaged goods that night,A fractured twig poised for a fall.
