Modern Medieval Hebrew Poetry by Binyamin Goldstein. The blog is about the Hebrew language and Hebrew poetry in particular. Its content exemplifies the old-fashioned way to learn a language, still the best way: compose in the language you wish to learn, and keep on working on it, until you get it right. Binyamin informs me that he reads Biblical, Mishnaic, and Rabbinic Hebrew, Syriac, Palestinian and Babylonian Aramaic fluently. >>> Dica de John F. Hobbins.
