Ella Bat-Tsion began to publish her poetry, under the name Gabriella Elisha, at the beginning of the 1970s;
since then 10 books have appeared. A librarian by profession, she is also an editor and translator from English and French into Hebrew. Mysticism, strong sensuality, violence and softness, all surface in her poetry. A few of her poems are sharp and even rude, others shed light on a woman in search of identity, faith and love.
