Israeli Authors: Survey of Contemporary Hebrew Literature
In this course we will explore contemporary Israeli literature. Closely reading texts by influential Israeli authors in their cultural, political, and historical contexts, we will devote each week to one author, providing students with solid grasp of the diverse poetic and ideological positions that comprise the Israeli literary map. Reading materials will include novels, short stories, poetry, and drama by authors such as Amos Oz, A.B. Yehoshua, David Grossman, Hanokh Levin, Amalia Kahana Karmon, Yehuda Amichai, Anton Shammas, and Orly Kastel-Bloom. All texts will be read in English translation. 3 hrs lect./disc.
