Time, Memory, and Tradition in the Poetry of Yehuda Amichai

“I seek a space that is pleasant and high and effective. To look out on my life – for better and for worse” ~Yehuda Amichai

Session 1

Session 2

The truth is that sometimes we all seek a place where we can stop – just for a moment – and think. Yehuda Amichai found a space like this toward the end of his life when he wrote his book, Open Closed Open, which provided him with the space to reflect on and think about life, finite time, love, family and friends, memory and forgetfulness, tradition and renewal. Delve into all of these in two sessions on the book with Dani Segal.
