This is one of the best literary courses I have taken. Lectures were clear, selection of poets was superb and it was a wonderful experience to go through the development of the Israeli poetry during the last 140 years or so. Obviously, many poets that worth studying are not covered. For example, Avot Yeshurun, Natan Yonatan and more. I certainly hope for more rounds of such course.

Thank you so much prof. Hirschfeld

I'm so sad the course is over - it was a weekly meeting with a different, higher reality.

Thank you again

Excelente, de una profundidad inusual. Gracias por este curso!!
