Amichai Yehuda

Amichai Yehuda  (1924–2000)

Yehuda Amichai was an Israeli poet. Amichai is considered by many to be the greatest modern Israeli poet, and was one of the first to write in colloquial Hebrew. His writings often dealt with the issues of day-to-day life, and were less overtly literary than many nineteenth century Hebrew poets such as Hayyim Nahman Bialik. His writings are characterized by gentle irony and the pain of damaged love. It was a love for people, for a religion and for a land, most of all it was a love for the city of Jerusalem.

Amichai was born in Würzburg, Germany, as Ludwig Pfeuffer, then immigrated with his family to Palestine in 1936. He fought in the World War II (British Army Jewish Brigade) and the Israeli War of Independence as a young man. He became an advocate of peace and reconciliation in the region, working with Palestinian writers.
