About the Book

Epithalamium of Prose, Poetry, and Puzzles for Aliza and Yhali takes its humble place in the celebrated tradition of wedding tributes going back to Sappho of Lesbos 2600 years ago and, perhaps, Song of Songs in Hebrew Scriptures earlier than that. A Greek master of the genre was Theocritus, to be followed by the Roman Catullus, Italian painters in the Renaissance, British and American composers and poets, and, of course, others far and wide. Several guest poets─apart from the editor/author and poet himself─grace the “Poetry” section of the book. Four contributors are family. Six contributors are members of the Kings Point Creative Writers Club in Delray Beach, Florida. The literary achievement of each contribution is unique; the composite affect of the whole is powerful. Puzzles in the concluding section of the book, custom-made by South Florida resource “Braintertainer” Judy Herman with clues and challenges honoring the couple, provide enjoyable mental exercise for puzzle pliers.
