For a sample of her poems, see: Seven Poems by D’vorah Elias.
(Editor: I’ve read the latest book by most of our featured poets so far, in preparation for their interviews, and, as an amateur poet, have been privileged to learn from all of them. Some have affected me, personally, more than others have. If I sound in my questions to Ms Elias more effusive than I have in other interviews, please take that with a grain of salt. Her poetry happens to suit me. Another poet would suit a different interviewer better. If only we had as many interviewers as interviewees, life would be a breeze! ....Stan Burfield, Poetry Night organizer.)
SB: The biggest emotional traumas in your life had a huge influence on your poetry. What were they? Did you have relatively happy interludes?
