Praise for Peter Cole

 

“A matchless translator and one of the handful of authentic poets in his own American generation. Hymns & Qualms is a majestic work, a chronicle of the imaginative life of a profoundly spiritual consciousness.” — Harold Bloom

 

"His vivid, sonorous English translations of secular and mystical Hebrew verse that was previously ­neglected or regarded as esoteric, parochial, or simply too difficult have remade the American Jewish canon." — Joshua Cohen, The Paris Review
