Driving language to the limit, expressing the inexpressible, and weaving the allusive metaphor are part and parcel of poetic language. Drawing on a host of famous poets from Blake to Yeats, T.S. Eliot to Celan, this talk will demonstrate the vast influence that Kabbalah has had on the development of modern poetry, while simultaneously illuminating the importance of the poetic in reading the depths of the Torah.
