Robert Friend was born in Brooklyn in 1913 and died in Jerusalem in 1998. He was the doyen of translator poets from the Hebrew and had published many volumes of his own poetry and his versions of modern Hebrew poetry. Menard Press was and is his main publisher.

The voice that resonates through a wdie variety of tones (lyrical, sardonic, rumbustious, sombre as night, wittily epigrammatic) and forms (from classical stanzas to free verse) is quite unmistakeable and consistently its own. Robert Friend is indeed a voice to be reckoned with.
