A poetics of trauma : the work of Dahlia Ravikovitch by Ilana Szobel( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of the renowned Israeli poet, translator, peace activist, and 1998 Israel Prize laureate Dahlia Ravikovitch (1936-2005) portrays the emotional structure of a traumatized and victimized female character. Ilana Szobel's book, the first full-length study of Ravikovitch in English, offers a theoretical discussion of the poetics of trauma and the politics of victimhood, as well as a rethinking of the notions of activity and passivity, strength and weakness. Analyzing the deep structure embodied in Ravikovitch's work, Szobel unearths the interconnectedness of Ravikovitch's private-poetic subjectivity and Israeli national identity, and shows how her unique poetics can help readers overcome cultural biases and sympathetically engage otherness."--Publisher's website
"Not with my feet on the ground" : poetics of estrangement, subversion, and witnessing in the oeuvre of Dalia Ravikovitch by Ilana Szobel( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of the deep structure embodied in Ravikovitch's work--a vortex of estrangement, madness and politics--unearths a process of a movement back and forth between a personal and a national trauma. Furthermore, focusing on the symptoms of a victimized psyche enables one to gain a deeper understanding of the various ways in which the subjectivity of a deviant might undermine the foundations of hegemony. In view of this suggestion, the dissertation offers a reading of Ravikovitch's entire oeuvre (both the lyrical and the political works) as an expression of her inner psychic mechanism. Looking at her writing as a poetic and metaphoric acting-out reveals its potential to challenge the hegemonic discourse. Moreover, it provides a useful conceptual framework in which to think about poetical and cultural modes of disruption, and their implications for the individual psychoanalytic process, the mechanism of the social establishment, and the formation of national identity
