Israeli poet, filmmaker, publicist, and playwright. He wrote 20 published books of Hebrew poetry.
He was an avant-garde artist throughout his life. He translated many of his own poems into English, and received several awards both as a poet and as a translator.
He was not popular with most critics or the general public throughout his life, often criticized as being egocentric, chauvinistic, and technocratic. By the early 1990s he could scarcely make a living, and his mental condition had deteriorated. Avidan died in Tel Aviv on 11 May 1995.
Since his death, Avidan's reputation has been on the rise both in literary circles and in the popular imagination, positioning him as one the core poets of the Israeli canon.
