Lecturer, Department of Comparative Literature
Giddon Ticotsky graduated from the Department of Literature at Tel Aviv University, Israel, in 2014. In that year he won the Israeli Bahat Prize for the best original scholarly book in Hebrew for his Ph.D dissertation about Israeli poet Dahlia Ravikovitch (1936-2005), one of the most prominent figures in modern Hebrew literature and poetry. Apart from this book, published by Haifa University Press and Yedi’ot Sfarim in 2016, Ticotsky authored two other books in Hebrew: Light along the Edge of a Cloud: Introduction to Leah Goldberg’s Oeuvre (Tel Aviv: Hakibbutz Hameuchad-Sifriat Poalim, 2011) and The Little Prince: Seven Essays on ‘The Little Prince’ in light of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Oeuvre (Tel Aviv: Hakibbutz Hameuchad, 1998).
Ticotsky also edited several books, such as Losses, a previously unpublished novel by Leah Goldberg (Tel Aviv: Sifriat Poalim, 2010), Dalia Ravikovitch: The Complete Poems (co-edited by Uzi Shavit, Tel Aviv: Hakibbutz Hameuchad, 2010) and Hanna Szenes: Letters, 1935–1944 (co-edited by Anna Szalai and and Eitan Szenes, Tel Aviv: Hakibbutz Hameuchad, 2014). He is also the executive editor of Stanford's Arcade Dibur Literary Journal.
