Abstract

This article will investigate a corpus of poems written in response to the Disengagement Plan, from the time the intention to carry it out was first made public and up to its actual execution, with the destruction of the Gush Katif and northern Samaria settlements and the evacuation of their residents. The corpus consists of poems written by different poets, most of whom shared a connection of some kind to the journal Mashiv Ha-Ruach and the cultural-sociological expanse in which it operates. The corpus under review includes the collection of poems “On the Disengagement,” which consists of poems written by Gush Katif evacuees included in the album Orange Dawn, the group of poems “Invitation to Cry: Six poems about the Disengagement,” by Eliaz Cohen, the poem cycle “Ten Journeys” by Sivan Har-Shefi, poems by Nahum Pachenik and Elhanan Nir a and book of prayers about the Land of Israel called Tzir Kissufim. At the focus of this article is a discussion of whether these poems, which were written within clearly defined political circumstances, attempted to undertake political action, and if so – what was nature of this action and to what degree was it effective? The possibility of the political realization of these poems will be examined by different types of readers, those who opposed the disengagement, those who were indifferent to it and those who supported the plan of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and wanted to see it through.
