This session combines Israeli literary works of both Jews and Arabs. We shall explore images of Arabs in Jewish Israeli literature. We will then juxtapose them with Arab Israeli literary works depicting a society in which they feel often disenfranchised. Poems of Yehuda Amichai and Agi Mishol will offer conflicting images of friend and foe. Sami Michael and Emil Habibi will present complimentary views of life of Jews and Arabs living together in the same street in Haifa that they both love.
