The poems of Lea Goldberg put on music

Author and poetess


Lea Goldberg is an author of books in prose, and in particular nursery rhymes, as well as a playwright, translator and specialist of literature. She is one of the most important poetesses in Israel. Many of her poems have been set to music.

In her poetry, she speaks of solitude and separation, with tragic intonations that may refer to her own solitude.

We can find Lea Goldberg’s poems in the music albums of many Israeli singers such as Chava Alberstein, Yehudit Ravitz, Nurit Galron, Achinoam Nini, Arik Einstein and Yossi Banai.
