  Yehuda Amichai - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yehuda Amichai (1924 - 2000) was an Israeli poet.
Amichai is considered by many to be the greatest modern Israeli poet, and was one of the first to write in colloquial Hebrew.
Amichai was born in Würzburg, Germany, as Ludwig Pfeuffer, then immigrated with his family to Palestine in 1936.

 The Selected Poetry of Yehuda Amichai (Literature of the Middle East) | By - Yehuda Amichai   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
Amichai was born in Germany in 1924, but immigrated to Israel as a boy of 12; he began writing poetry early, especially in the exuberant atmosphere of the newly proclaimed Israel in 1948.
Amichai continued to write poetry throughout the twentieth century (he died in 2000), winning national and international prizes and recognition as one of the greatest poets of the age, not only of Hebrew, but internationally.
Amichai is a patriot of sorts, in that he celebrates the place and culture of Israel, but is not blind to the problems there, and by no means a 'death to the enemy' kind of writer -- a bit ironic, given that his poetry is popular among the soldier-citizenry of Israel.

 Yehuda Amichai - Press Release
Predictably, Amichai's popularity abroad has contributed to a certain critical backlash in Israel, one particularly jaundiced recent critic going so far as to claim that this is the sort of stylistically meager poetry in which nothing is lost in translation.
In fact, Amichai's continuing popularity in Israel reflects the fact that he is by no means a poet for export only, and despite the liveliness and beguiling character of his poetry in translation, there are aspects of athletic inventiveness in his Hebrew that cannot cross the translation barrier.
As one might assume, Amichai's exploitation of indigenous stylistic resources is often connected with his sensitivity to the expressive sounds of the Hebrew words he uses and with his inventive puns, which are sometimes playful, sometimes dead serious, and often both at once.

Yehuda Amichai was an Israeli poet who was born in 1924, began his writing career in 1948, and died, sadly, in September of 2000.
Amichai’s poetry has the kind of wit often found in the work of poets whose countries have been torn apart by years of war (Wislawa Szymborska also comes to mind here).
Amichai was one of the great minds of our time, and I strongly believe he should be read more widely in the United States than he is currently.

 @The Source Israel Online Magazine
One of the reasons for this emotional reaction is Amichai's simple love of life and his awareness of the profundity of the experience of daily living, intensified by the fact that this living occurs in a country charged with meaning and continuous moral choice.
Whether Amichai is describing the process of carrying his ex-wife's bed down the street in Jerusalem or watching the Israelite in front of him follow Moses through the desert, the poem is a sum of the common experience and the unrepeatable understanding.
Although Amichai's poems are many and varied, my favorite come from the sensual, the spiritual and the philosophical side of Amichai, when he grapples with the significance of his own life and the lives of those heloves.
