Singing in a Strange Land explores how the history and cultural conditions of Jewish poetry and poetic production--from the destruction of the Second Temple and Babylonian exile to medieval Spain, the Nazi Holocaust, the contemporary Gulf War, and the second Palestinian intifada--have shaped "Jewish American poetry"; and, through analyses of important poems by significant Jewish American poets, how they shape Jewish American cultural identity.
