Review: The Music of the Prophets: The Resettlement of the Jews in England, 1655-56, by Michelene Wandor

Over several years Michelene Wandor has penned a triptych of poems about the history of Jews in England. [She] didn't set out to create a body of work on the subject but was pursuing her twin interests in historical research and her Jewish heritage.

My poetry has always had Jewish themes, even before the revivalist interest and resurgence of Jewish culture of the past 15 years. I am not religious at all - I am a good Jewish atheist - but it is part of my culture and background.
