This unusual book of poems by David Haskell Cohen was written mostly in the last fifty years, in classical English verse. There are many variations in form, beat and rhythm. Sonnet form is a favorite, but even there subtle variations abound.As a London taxi driver famously asked the philosopher Bertrand Russell: What's it all abaht then? The critic can honestly reply that all of life is here but he had better quickly add that there is a powerful body of verse in which a Jew is pleading with Heaven.There are great lines in these poems, but his has been a largely undiscovered talent.
