5.0 out of 5 stars A Veritable Love of Judaism and Zion Sept. 17 2008
Format:Paperback
This 170 page poetic chef d'oeuvre about a young poet's deep love for the Jewish people in its homeland, in exile, in its spiritual heritage is a must read for all Jews and Christians, indeed for all those who value Judaic civilization.

In this cynical post-modern age - at least since the Second World War- few poets in any tongue have come close to the marvelous poetic lyrical expressions contained in Inspirations of Israel. One would have to revisit the classical Hebrew poets of medieval Spain such as ibn Gavirol and Ha-Levi to grasp the sensational quality of this modern 'Zionide' work.

Young Canadian poet Brandon Marlon, all of 28 years, now residing in the Holy Land, makes the Jewish people's 3000 year presence in history come alive. There is an almost spiritual ecstasy prevalent in these poems amidst evocations of suffering, glory, survival and love.

In "Please God" we are treated to an overwhelming poetic prayer seeking a woman to love; in "Daughters of Jerusalem" and "Oholibah" the reader suddenly hears echoes of Solomonic canticles; in "Landscape of Love" powerful personal love imagery is entwined with Zion's geography such that one can actually feel and touch the places mentioned and in "Kannaim" our breath is taken away by the Roman subjugation of the Jewish resistance in Temple times.

Over 100 poems grace the pages of this collection. History and culture, faith and folklore, landscape and love - this delightful book captures the epic saga that is Israel and creates an indelible impression of the beauty and pain of a timeless nation.

I sincerely hope we will be treated to further poetic delights from the pen of this promising young writer.
