Eli Eliahu (born in Tel Aviv in 1969) studied Jewish Philosophy and Hebrew Literature. He is the editor of the newspaper Haaretz and writes for it on literary and cultural subjects.
In his poems, everyday experiences and struggles point to the ‘big idea’ behind them, and Eliahu is constantly exploring the tension between what is visible and what is concealed, starting from the words themselves and their sound and rhythm and their meaning in different contexts. His poetry collection I, and not an angel was awarded the Education and Culture Ministry Prize for Debut Books. In 2013 he received the Matanel Prize for Jewish Poetry, and in 2014 the Prime Minister’s Prize for Literature.
