Amir Gilboa, born Berl Feldmann, is an Israeli poet who serves in the British Army’s Jewish Brigade during World War II and later fights in the Israeli War for Independence. He is known for drawing upon his military experiences and biblical issues of morality to write his often contemplative and heavy poems. His many influential poetry collections, including “The Light of Lost Suns,” “Seven Dominions,” and “To Write The Lips Of Those Asleep,” earn him the Bialik prize in 1971 and the Israel Prize in 1982.
