This book is the first to approach and portray contemporary Hebrew Israeli poetry that focuses on the Holocaust. It clusters a variety of contemporary Israeli poets whose poetry displays different 'doses' of Holocaust poems. Sometimes the book addresses aesthetically/ideologically a poet who wrote only very few Holocaust poems. In all cases, however, instead of developing a theoretical/methodological discussion, the book prefers to focus on individual poems while practicing close reading of them. These interpretive discussions unearth latent poetic currents in the poems while casting a new, surprising light upon their aesthetic mechanism and ideological proclivities. Yair Mazor is a professor of Hebrew Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
