Abstract:
Palestinian poetry over the past one hundred years has been foremost a poetry of commitment. It is proposed in this thesis that the poetry of the Palestinian Uprising (Intifada), the major topic under discussion in this work, marks, what could possibly be, the culmination of Palestinian resistance literature. The poetry which has been chosen for this particular study comes from a collection which the author gathered, and subsequently translated, during the first six months of the Palestinian Uprising. All of the poetry included appeared in publications published in either Israel or in the Israeli-occupied territories during this period. Chapter one discusses the background behind the Intifada. The second chapter gives a brief history of Palestinian poetry in general. The main body of the paper, chapter three, includes a translation and analysis of the Intifada poetry. Finally, chapter four discusses some of the imagery and symbolism contained in the poetry.
