Three Yehuda Amichai poems will start our exploration of images of peace in Israeli poetry at times when peace is a mere wish at best. As each of these poems uses a very different metaphorical backdrop, we hope for a lively discussion.
The three songs/poems Rotblit's – Shir lashalom ,Dorit Tzameret's – The Wheat Grows Again, and Haspri's "The Winter of 73" will offer a unique point of view as all three are written in a conversational tone with those who died and about them. Peace has not yet been experienced or defined. It seems all one can hope for, is just something that comes after the war…We will conclude with a smile with the reading of Ronny Somek's: "Peace".
