132 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. POETRY. In this unique book, these accomplished poets have created an ongoing dialectic as their poems respond to each other on at least 57 subjects. In free, formal and sometimes prose poetry, they range from the nature of God and Creation to discussion on vegetarianism. Menke may begin a dispute on the best wine to drink by writing a formal variation. Or Harry may propose a challenge: 'Menke, let's write about whores. ' Menke Katz, editor of Bitterroot and author of ten books of poetry in Yiddish and three in English, has doctorates in both theology and modern poetry, was expelled from college for issuing a declaration of independence. Humor, insight and friendship tie their varied speculations into a complex, rich unity of life and art. Whether the issue is small or large, Two Friends makes it a rewarding and original experience-a tribute to poetry and friendship with eternal L'CHAIMS. (Key Words: Menke Katz, Friends, Harry Smith, Poetry, Yiddish Poets, Lisa Smith).
