Poetic Trespass:
Writing between Hebrew and Arabic in Israel/Palestine
Lital Levy

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Poetic Trespass opens new vistas on the 'no-man's land' between Hebrew and Arabic. Through deeply thoughtful readings of works in Hebrew, Arabic, and uncanny palimpsests of both languages, Lital Levy probes the ways in which literature can reimagine the world beyond the ordinary boundaries of political discourse. With its nuanced attention to questions of translation and mistranslation, of cultural memory and oblivion, Poetic Trespass should be read by anyone interested in pathbreaking work in comparative literary and cultural studies today."--David Damrosch, Harvard University

"Poetic Trespass is one of the most important studies of contemporary Hebrew literature in recent years. Focusing on how a variety of writers in Israel/Palestine transgress the lines that separate Hebrew and Arabic, Lital Levy’s compelling, provocative, and productive book enriches our understanding of more than a century of literature in both these languages. It is bound to appeal to scholars across fields who are interested in Jewish studies, the history of Israeli-Palestinian relations, and the history of the Middle East."--Amir Eshel, Stanford University
