Summary No poem has exerted a more sustained pull on the political imagination of people around the world than Psalm 137. 'Song of Exile' is an archaeology of this enduring text, which opens a window on the Babylonian exile 2500 years ago - a crucial event for the formation of Judaism - and has been a siren song to musicians, artists, writers, theologians, and leaders. This book unpacks the subtle ways in which memory of the exile has affected the self-understanding of Jews, Christians, and other displaced communities
