Description:
In his final collection of poems, Abba Kovner - the famed Jewish resistance fighter who led the Vilna ghetto uprising during World War II - records his battle with cancer and his deep engagement with life up to his last days.

"[This] translation unfolds a multi-leveled composition of personal stormy biography, a strong sense of a national and humane mission, and above all-the simplicity reached by a person of stature, on the eve of his death . . . He now knows that life is an unending quest, soaring above principles and wars, that being Jewish entails a constant search for meaning, that the milk a Holocaust survivor drinks is always red, that most questions have no answers . . . Here is a work of art, masterfully presented."
--A.B. Yehoshua

"Abba Kovner was one of the greatest poet-fighters in the Jewish tradition. I grew up in his light, as did many of those of my generation. He was a hero to us all, and a splendid poet. To read, hear, experience the intimacy of his last months-- that is something very powerful."
--Chaim Potok
