Serena Elliott (serena.elliott@duke.edu)

Peter Cole, the author of a new book, "The Poetry of Kabbalah: Mystical Verse from the Jewish Tradition," will be a guest lecturer of the Duke Center for Jewish Studies. His collection presents for the first time in English a substantial body of poetry that emerges directly from the sublime and often startling world of Jewish mysticism. He provides renderings of work composed on three continents over a 1,500-year period.

The free event is open to the public.
