JS 127 - Israeli Culture in Literature Since the 1970s


Israeli society has undergone substantial changes during the last four decades. This course will observe these changes from a literary perspective. We will read Israeli prose fiction from the classic works of the1970s to the works of young writers now reshaping the literary landscape, in order to understand some of the primary images by which Israelis see and reflect themselves in Hebrew literature. Among the writers we will examine are Amos Oz, A.B. Yehoshua, Orly Castel-Bloom and Etgar Keret.
