Poetry of Yehuda Amichai
February 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$11.00 - $77.00
Yehuda Amichai (1924-2000) was the most popular Israeli poet of the second half of the 20th century. His work has been translated into over 30 languages and is read around the world. Though his idiom is often very Jewish, Amichai’s poetry is very accessible and deals with universal issues such as love, family, memory, identity, and conflict.
Dr. Regina Stein will lead the class on how to read and explore Amichai, not only to understand him, but just as importantly, to challenge ourselves to think about our own feelings and reactions to his writing and the issues he raises.
The classes will be held over Zoom every Tuesday from 11am – 12pm ET from January 4 – February 22. Though we recommend that you attend each session in this class, you may also take each class à la carte.
