Zohar Atkins s first collection Nineveh takes its modernist bearings from Edmond Jabes, Paul Celan, and Yehudah Amichai but also, merrily, from John Ashbery and Frank O Hara His poems offer humor and hospitality alongside deep learning and enigmatic, mystical theophany The division between secular and religious is blurred, the two coexist in a generous exchange The Bible is near at hand but rendered unfamiliar in the combination of anachronism with classical allusion The poems produce a jarring, contemporary Midrashim interpretative retellings of canonical tales Cain and Abel appear as business executives, Ishmael is a Palestinian dying in an Israeli hospital, Rachel and Leah are the projected identities of a demented Jacob, and God is a perfectionist who procrastinates by binge watching TV.
