The selected poems of Ruth Finer Mintz include 35 new poems written since Traveler Through Time, 1970 and translations of her poems into Hebrew by Israeli poets. Since The Darkening Green, 1965, and Modern Hebrew Poetry (translations), 1967, her work has created an aesthetic bridge between Israel and the reader of English poetry. Her direct, personal idiom and lucid, unadorned style bring closer the woman's world, reflecting the spirit of our time and pointing the contemporary in the ancient human dilemmas. The language of the sensualist and the mind of the humanist heighten her celebration of life. ; New York - 'Speed, clarity, tension, nervous strength and of course humanity are all the quality of this poetry... I suppose I like best, the poems of Israel...' Mark Van Doren. Jerusalem - 'Poems so sensorily awake transmit most subtly the physical into the spiritual and the spiritual into the physical, so that the lover of good poetry enjoys them just in that way.' Simon Halkin. The poetry of Ruth Finer Mintz has been widely published in literary journals in the United States and abroad. Translations of her work into Hebrew have appeared in the literary journals and in the press of Israel.
