Location: Room 158
Mahmoud Darwish and Yehuda Amichai share much in common. Each is regarded as the national poet of their generation, and each acknowledges the other as an influence in their work. Yet, there is one difference that cannot be avoided - Darwish is a Palestinian and Amichai an Israeli. In this session we will examine these commonalities and differences between these two great poets, and see what we can learn for the present state of Israeli-Palestinian relations. In doing so, we will shed light on Darwish's question of Amichai - "who is the owner of the language of this land? Who loves it more? Who writes it better?"
