    Short Description for The Singer on the Shore Gathers together several essays, spanning subjects from the Bible, Shakespeare and Kafka to Rembrandt, Kierkegaarde and Tristram Shandy. This work is unified by the twin themes of Jewish experience, with its consciousness of exile and the time-bound nature of human activity, and of the role of the work of art as a toy.
