Israeli Authors and Poets - Haim Gouri - Set for only GBP £0.55
In the past two years, we’ve lost three of Israel’s greatest Hebrew writers. Each left a mark in his/her field, not just for their writing talent and excellent published works, but rather, and possibly even more so, due to their clear voices and involvement in Israeli society, from the establishment of the new State. Three generations characterized by a simultaneous mix of contradictions and parallels. Haim Gouri and Amos Oz, born in Israel prior to the State, reflected in their writings the country’s wars and the central questions of the new Jewish-Israeli existence after the War of Independence. Ronit Matalon, born in the State of Israel, reflected in her writings the condition of the individual, mainly the female individual, as a woman from mid-Eastern descent driven to promote the status of women and to increase pluralism in the renewed State of Israel.
