Souls in the Garden: Poems About Jewish Spain

Souls in the Garden: Poems About Jewish Spain is a collection of poems inspired by my two trips to Spain. In 2000 I visited Málaga, Granada, Cazorla, Úbeda, Córdoba, Seville, and Jérez in southern Spain (Andalucía), as well as Toledo and Madrid. In 2012 I traveled in northern Spain to Barcelona, Girona, Figueres, Bésalu, Tarazona, Tudela, Zaragoza, Bilbao, Ávila, Segovia, Salamanca, and Madrid. With a few exceptions, most of these cities are part of the Camino de Sefarad, a Jewish pilgrim’s route designed by the Spanish government.

Finally, my other web site, medievalhebrewpoetry.org, has a short slideshow of photographs I took during one or both of my trips to Spain. Many of the photos are associated with places and people described in Souls in the Garden.
