Passionate Renewal celebrates poetry written by British Jews since 1945. Twenty poets have been selected from among the most significant voices. Many of the writers are key figures in British poetry. The subjects covered include family and home, love and friendship, Judaism and secularism, the Holocaust and resistance to oppression...but each poet considers these themes in widely divergent ways. This is the first anthology of Jewish poetry in Britain.
