Ze’ev Vladimir Jabotinsky? Most people know Jabotinsky was a charismatic leader of the Revisionists, the founder of the Betar Movement and the Herut Party (the predecessor of today’s Likud Party). Very few people know that he was a prolific writer (in Russian and Hebrew), translated Edgar Allan Poe’s poems in to Hebrew, including Annabel Lee and The Raven. “The Raven” tries to explicate Jabotinsky’s deceptive character, revealing his conflicted personality, and the powerful desires and remarkable abilities that led him, despite an untimely death, to leave an indelible mark on Zionism and Israel.
