About this Item

(FT) 12mo. 450 pages. In Hebrew. SUBJECT(S) : Poetry. OCLC lists no copies for this edition worldwide. Amir-Pinkerfeld (1902-1981) "was born in Galicia, into an assimilated family. Her father worked as an architect for the Austro-Hungarian government. She completed secondary school in Lvov, and published a book of verse in Polish at the age of 18, her first poem being the prayer of a Polish child for the liberation of his country. After studying at the universities of Leipzig and Lvov, she immigrated to Palestine in 1923. In 1921 she published another volume of verse in Polish, Piesni zycia. Thereafter, under the influence of Uri Zevi Greenberg, she began writing in Hebrew. The themes of her verse are love of nature, romantic love, and the joys of motherhood. Her long poem "Ahat" describes a young Jewish girl who immigrates to Israel after surviving the Holocaust and dies fighting for Israeli independence. [She] was the first poet to write poetry in Hebrew specifically for children and distinguished herself in this field. In 1978 she received the Israel Prize for children's literature.
