An acclaimed modern Hebrew poet.
Many of Yeshurun's poems allude to the guilt he felt for having left Europe before the Holocaust, leaving his home and family behind. His poetry is known for its broken phrasing, and combines Yiddish, biblical and modern Hebrew, and slang used by various cultural groups in Israel, including phrases in Arabic, which he often uses ironically in criticism of the marginalization of Arabs and Arabic in Israeli culture.
He died on 22 February 1992.
The year he died, Avot Yeshurun received the Israel Prize for Poetry. He was informed of the prize in the hospital on 10 January, the day his wife Pessia died.
