Poetry. Jewish Studies. "The sacred duty of Holocaust remembrance--commemorating the dead, honoring the living, and posing the pertinent theological, ethical, and political questions generated by the Holocaust--is the substance of Charles Fishman's compelling collection of American Holocaust poetry. Fishman successfully assembles works that render a historically remote and often painfully resisted subject in a manner that makes the catastrophe real....One is grateful for the book's sound critical notes, its exploration of the moral implications of the Holocaust and problematics of writing Holocaust poetry, and its witness to the terrifying truths of human history while asserting the indestructibility of the human spirit. Highly recommended"--Choice.
