JERUSALEM - Ezra P. Gorodesky was walking through the Bell Tower shopping center downtown yesterday, pausing to peer into the windows of every shuttered shop. Many more stores were closed than open. "I'm surprised to find that this whole place is dead," Gorodesky, a retired museum curator, said, slowly shaking his head at the stark evidence of Israel's economic troubles. On the shopping center's uppermost level, a tableware shop is the only tenant, but its business hours have been reduced to one day a week.

Austrian composer Gustav Mahler, for example, found in a set of German translations of Li Po the impetus to create "Das Lied von der Erde" ("The Song of the Earth"). And four years after the 1911 posthumous premiere of that profound music, American poet Ezra Pound published "Cathay," his influential interpretations of Li Po and other Chinese poets.
