Language: English . Brand New Book. The work of the renowned Israeli poet, translator, peace activist, and 1998 Israel Prize laureate Dahlia Ravikovitch (1936-2005) portrays the emotional structure of a traumatized and victimized female character. Ilana Szobel s book, the first full-length study of Ravikovitch in English, offers a theoretical discussion of the poetics of trauma and the politics of victimhood, as well as a rethinking of the notions of activity and passivity, strength and weakness. Analyzing the deep structure embodied in Ravikovitch s work, Szobel unearths the interconnectedness of Ravikovitch s private-poetic subjectivity and Israeli national identity, and shows how her unique poetics can help readers overcome cultural biases and sympathetically engage otherness.

Critique: "With this study, Szobel offers a theoretically rigorous and compelling introduction to Ravikovitch's work, with each section suggesting various strands for future research on the poet. She builds a convincing case for an understanding of Ravikovitch's trauma that is not, to paraphrase her, "trapped in binary terms or in a biological reading, but rather one that highlights and creates spaces of textual and cultural interrelation, where sites of conflict activate and engage." --Hebrew Studies
