Naomi Replansky was born in the Bronx in 1918. The daughter of working-class Russian-Jewish immigrants, by her mid-teens she began publishing poetry that wove together leftist themes, Jewish history, and oral and folk traditions. During the 1930s and 1940s, she worked in factories but by the 1950s was living in Los Angeles and translating the work of Bertolt Brecht. Replansky's 1932 debut was a finalist for the National Book Award.

Here at long last is the collected work of a lifetime by one of the most brilliant American poets—a poet of the people.
