Hommage mit doppeltem Boden: Die Gestalt Lea Goldbergs in „Begegnung mit einem Dichter“

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article focuses on the memoir written by Lea Goldberg on the poet Avraham Ben Yitzhak (Pegisha im Meshorer, 1952). It presents the results of a phenomenological reading of the memoir. The author maintains that by paying attention to the intention of the text as well as to its cultural, intellectual and emotional dichotomies, one reveals the resolution at the end of the memoir of an inner conflict implicit throughout the entire text. This reading results in a re-definition of the appropriate genre attribution for this work (which we may call polemical memoir) and yields a new key to understanding the artistic and intellectual conflicts that characterize a wide range of poetic phenomena in Goldberg’s poetry.
