The Music of the Prophets: The Resettlement of the Jews in England, 1655-56

Michelene Wandor

The Music of the Prophets: The Resettlement of the Jews in England, 1655-56

In 1290 the Jews were banished from England. In 1655-56, Jews once more became a part of British society, returning to the London of Oliver Cromwell, Samuel Pepys and Henry Purcell. To commemorate the 250th anniversary of this return, Michelene Wandor has written a sensuous dramatic narrative poem, evoking seventeenth-century London, and telling the story of the two men who made this return possible: Cromwell and Menasseh Ben Israel.

The Book of Belongings

Brian Johnstone

The Book of Belongings

The Book of Belongings reads like an archaeology of the lost, its pages uncovering and observing what has vanished, died or been abandoned. Battlefields, remote landscapes, pre-war classrooms, nightmares of childhood, the past with all its demons and sad domestic litanies, all are here, vanished histories given a voice by this accomplished poet.
