This course will analyze texts by a writer whose name is nearly synonymous with Israeli Literature, A.B. Yehoshua. Following the “Dor HaPalmach,” when Israeli literature was often described as ideological, interested in the collective struggle of cementing a national ethos and Israeli identity, there arose a literature of revolt, one aligned with a more modernist sensibility, and the consciousness and life trajectories of the individual. We will reflect upon how Yehoshua’s writing marks a revolutionary moment in Israeli literature and, through the intimate stories of individuals in complicated, diverse worlds, we will see how his prose comments on Israel, Jewish life, modern identity, culture and social challenges. Texts include short stories and the novels: Mr. Mani (1989), The Journey to the End of the Millenium (1997), and A Woman in Jerusalem (2004). Students should acquire the novels.
