Vulture in a Cage: Ibn Gabirol in His World

Raymond P. Scheindlin

After a millennium of acclaim, the poetry of Solomon Ibn Gabirol has been translated anew by Ray Scheindlin, covering the sacred and the secular, explorations of nature, drink, love, sex, friendship, and loneliness.  The poet’s wit, satirical genius, and elegiac brilliance are beautifully captured in Scheindlin’s luminous translations.

Raymond R. Scheindlin is Professor of Medieval Hebrew Literature at the Jewish Theological Seminary and director of the Shalom Spiegel Institute of Medieval Hebrew Poetry.
