We are glad to announce this new electronic magazine of contemporary Israeli poetry in English translation, which we hope will be a cultural bridge between Israelis and interested people in our global village.
Paul Valery wisely wrote: "In all arts there is a physical component which can no longer be considered or treated as it used to be, which cannot remain unaffected by our modern knowledge and power .... We must expect great innovations to transform the entire technique of the arts, thereby affecting artistic invention itself and perhaps even bringing about an amazing change in the very notion of art."
The innovations that are rapidly transforming the technique of the arts, which Valery so well describes, are already with us, and they have gained a tremendous boost with the use of the Internet and the Computer. These new communication tools are indeed bringing about extraordinary changes in the very definition and conception of the arts, culture and literature.
A major change that POETRY - ISRAEL: LIRIT - the electronic literary journal of the Hebrew Writers Association in Israel attempts to promote through use of new technology and techniques, is the creation of a cultural climate of peace and harmony. We are concerned primarily to provide a forum for poets who have a special interest in using their art, pens, computers and modems, to help create and promote the cultural climate of peace and understanding.
As Paul Valery so wisely foresaw, the new electronic media, the television, computer and internet, have affected artistic creation itself in its notions, trends and subjects. The new media facilitates communication between people, between cultures and between ethnic entities. With our new artistic contents, trends and techniques, we hope to introduce poetic and artistic contemporary Israel in its immediate reality, through the eyes of some selected Israeli poets.
