Israeli Poetry as a Window to Israeli Society and History

Hosted By: Pardes

There are many ways to tell Israel’s story. This class does not talk about Israel – it listens. It listens to the authentic voices of Israeli writers ‎who give poetic expressions to the stories of revival, the struggles for security and peace, the ‎shortcomings of discrimination and the effort to find a balance between contradictory aspirations. It is ‎not the only way to tell the story but it is an interesting one. Participants will be invited into some of ‎the inner Israeli discourse of Israeli poetry, music and literature and learn its vocabulary.‎
