Singer’s proverbial insight, like Kafka’s, describes the reality behind things, in a spare and stark place that is not for us. Reality, like a poem, is a corridor between dark and dark that leads at last to a “true recess,” emptiness and void, “not a soul in sight.” But still in the darkness there are circles of lamplight, places of rest.

“What but a desire to stay here would have made me come to this desolate place?” asks Kafka. We too want to stay for a while, learn for a while, in the desolate places Singer shows us and of which she somehow manages to make a sojourn—a true enough home, even in the corridor.
