“It’s Me, the Dreamer, Speaking”: Politically Engaged Hebrew Poetry in the 20th Century. Should poets write about love when a World War is raging outside? Who first wrote poetry about the Nakba in Hebrew, and why was he made fun of? Who was the first to translate The Internationale into Hebrew? And what does iambic pentameter have to do with the Mediterranean Sea and Revisionist Zionism? The poetry in Hebrew since the revival of the Hebrew language in the late 19th century was for many a political tool. It was used to dream and ponder not only about the Zionist movement, but also about many other political agenda. Since then and through the decades, Hebrew poetry always knew how to talk about current issues with grace and wisdom. This course has three objectives: to familiarize students with key figures and movements in Hebrew poetry, explore the political aspects of modern Hebrew poetry, and provide tools for better understanding and appreciation of poetry in Hebrew as a language student. *** Early Bird Price Starts at- 1200 NIS - Until 03/03 Regular Price Starts at - 1300 NIS - Until 24/03 Late Price Starts at - 1400 NIS - Until first lesson of the course *** We have made a small change in our pricing structure and are now offering a sliding scale in order to give you the opportunity to donate 100 or 200 shekels when you buy a course.
