The legends of Lag BaOmer loom large in Agnon's writing and in his pseudo-autobiography. What role does the mystical holiday play in his stories and in his imagination? How does it connect to his portrayed vision of the Land of Israel?
For our first session -- on Lag BaOmer -- you can start by reading the short story "To the Galilee" -- available on the Tablet website (in Hebrew as "HaGalilah"; email me if you want a copy).
|May 21, 2017 7:00PM - 8:00PM|
Jerusalem of Agnon and Amichai
To mark Yom Yerushalayim and the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem we will discuss the role the city plays in the prose of Agnon and the poetry of Yehuda Amichai -- and explore points of contact between them.
|May 28, 2017 7:00PM - 8:00PM|
For our final session we will read Agnon's "signature story" and his debut Hebrew publication upon arriving in Eretz Yisrael - "Agunot".
Please let me know if you'd like the Hebrew version.
