Spotlight on


For the last decade or so Dr Peleg has been engaged in an ongoing examination of the history and nature of romance in modern Hebrew literature, especially the paradoxical absence of it from the modern Hebrew roman or novel. This examination has inspired his first book about homoeroticism in Hebrew literature, Derech Gever (Hebrew, 2003), which looks at "romance" between men in Hebrew literature as an articulation of early Zionism's preoccupation with masculinity.
