Example text

The Wandering Jew and the nomad here are virtually interchangeable. If, initially, the speaker can declare, seemingly without irony, that “nothing ever comes as charming as exile” (11), the status of the diasporic subject is much more ambiguous by the poem’s end; the poem concludes with the declaration “No one can evade his land even in nightmares” (112).
