"This book is an attempt to read one of the ancient prophets, not only in his time but also in the unbridled and complex time that is ours. Jeremiah's life is like a cry in the night. It is in this persistent darkness that the prophet's life and ours meet. He is the brother who stands by our side. His poetry is lively, personal, and contains great concreteness. It is a cry that rises from our sorrow. Jeremiah teaches us to read poetry as prayer and prayer as poetry . During the reading - and the prayer - it may appear that all the centuries that lie between us and Jeremiah dissolve. And we contemporaries of the prophet from Anathoth." - from the author's foreword
