Great World Writers: Twentieth Century - Vol. 9

By Patrick M. O'Neil | Go to book overview


Amos Oz

BORN: May 4, 1939, Jerusalem

IDENTIFICATION: Israeli writer of socially conscious novels that realistically evoke the emotional and spiritual struggles of kibbutz dwellers and urban Jews and explore the conf licting passions of political, scientific, and artistic community leaders.

SIGNIFICANCE: Amos Oz wrote his most popular and critically acclaimed work in the early 1970s. His first novel, My Michael (1968), established his importance as an emerging voice in Hebrew fiction. This portrait of a lonely young Jewish woman whose struggling academic husband sacrifices her happiness for his own modest success strongly resonated in Jewish communities. Oz's later novels proved immensely popular in the United States and many other countries worldwide, and his work has been translated into nearly 20 languages. He has received the French Prix Femina and the Frankfurt Peace Prize. His passionate explorations of jealousy, loneliness, and ambition have made him a leading Israeli advocate for peace.
