Edna - Bracha Sari
Edna, like all of Sari's poetry, confronts the reads with the multitude of expectations they bring to a meeting with Poetry Books. Edna is printed in small format, self-published, without punctuation, accompanied by verses and "handwritten" notes. The whole life of Sari unfolds in front of the reads, and they seem to dive in, to the heart of Sari's unique poetics. It seems that Sari's honesty speaks to everyone, and there is no one that will not identify with her piercing poems.
From her beginning, Sari has dealt with questions of faith, women status- her place in the Yemenite community in Jerusalem, and the harsh daily life. In her tenderness, her poetry reached a refinement and an "interim summary". There is neither a shout nor an enormous protest as in her book "Tears" nor the anarchist dimension of "Seventy Wandering Songs". "Edna" has a special and unique voice, in which Sari writs through a new perspective.
