Abstract:

Notes that Holocaust poetry affects literary and cultural studies, and has philosophical, religious, and historical implications. Holocaust poetry written by Jews adverts to a Jewish concept of time, as part of the Jewish culture of remembrance, without abandoning its esthetical autonomy. Discusses the life and work of various poets, including Paul Celan, Rose Ausländer, Tuvia Rübner, Nelly Sachs, Dan Pagis, Yehuda Amichai, and Jacob Glatstein. Argues that the poets want to make a statement, although they are conscious of the danger of equating memory with events, that poetic reality always differs from that of events. Poetic lyrics in face of the Holocaust constitute an inspiring expression of creative contemplation on the course of Jewish history and the state of the individual in it.
