Modern Hebrew Literature in Israel
Time & Location
Can you imagine a novel written in Latin on the New York Times Best Selling List? Or one written in Ancient Greek awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature? Yet it comes as no surprise when Israeli novelists who write in Hebrew – a language older than Latin and Greek –receive recognition throughout the world.
As we examine the work of one of Israel’s greatest authors, Amos Oz, we will ask:
- How and why did Hebrew survive and flourish, while other ancient languages did not?
- How has Israel transformed the Hebrew language?
- How has the Hebrew language transformed Israel?
Reading Assignment for class: Amos Oz, “The Hill of Evil Counsel”
