output. From year to year new young literary creators, some
very promising, make their debut. It is only fitting that Hebrew
readers outside of Israel should acquaint themselves w ith these
newcomers. We do not, of course, mean to predict how many
of them w ill continue as writers or poets, but we should afford
them an opportunity to be introduced to readers. A noteworthy
phenomenon is the appearance of so many fledgling women poets.
Needless to add, this year’s literary crop in Israel is blessed
w ith a variety of subjects such as technology, sociology, the
humanities, Judaica, and the like. But as mentioned above, we
have limited ourselves to a single area—that of belles-lettres. It
would be well-nigh impossible even to introduce this year’s
vast output by mentioning fifty books. We feel, therefore, that
in selecting a special field of literary endeavor we can do justice
at least to this area.
Th is survey is written in the mourning period for Daniel
Persky, to whom every Hebrew book was dear. He watched with
love and exultation the publication of each Hebrew book, in
whatever type of literature. May this survey, humbly dedicated
to him, be our token of devoted remembrance to that “slave of
Hebrew” to whom the Hebrew book was the very existence and
content of his entire life.
