Leaving The Garden, Biblical Poems

Title: Leaving the Garden
Adam and Eve leaving the Garden of Eden and going out into the Unknown.

Poems based on the Tanach

‘Leaving The Garden’ is a Book of Poems based on The Tanach (The Jewish Bible), by Ruth Fogelman. Illustrated by Chana Helen.

The emphasis in this collection of poetry is on the woman’s voice in the Bible, for women, more than men, remain voiceless in the Bible’s narrative. While some of the poems are in a whimsical or humorous mood, many of them display the existential aloneness at the heart of these Biblical characters, a feeling with which many of us can identify. Seventeen original line-drawings by the artist, Chana Helen Rosenberg, inspired by these poems, enhance this volume with a unique graphic dimension.
