Polish Literature in Israel: Between the Memory of Europe and a New Life

Eugenia Prokop-Janiec


The article presents Polish literature in Israel as literature written by migrants: a response to the experience of being relocated and of functioning between different cultures. The subject of the analyses are the paraphrases, travesties and parodies of works by Adam Mickiewicz that are present in Polish-Israeli literature. Referring to the canon texts of Polish literature in them serves recording the life in Israel. Using Polish literary patterns in stories about the new life and inscribing the Israeli world as well as signs of Hebrew culture into them is interpreted as a peculiar correlate of the experience of migration.
