AME 127/227: Land and Literature

Israel had captured the imagination of writers throughout the generations. It has been portrayed as a promised land, a holy land, a homeland, an empty land, an occupied land, and as a land of dreams. In this course we will investigate how ideological views and political events have shaped writers' conception of the place. We will read a selection of poems and prose by Hebrew/Israeli authors (in translation) and study relevant theoretical texts about place and literature.
