Moses Dar'i of Alexandria was the product of both Arab courtly culture and Jewish civilization, and certainly the most gifted poet of medieval Karaism. This collection of his work reflects the tension and blend between his two contrasting backgrounds.The volume offers a close reading of the Hebrew collection of over five hundred of his writings, based on manuscripts from St. Petersburg, Ramle and New York. 'Dr. Weinberger is one of only two or three scholars competent to edit this collection.'--Leon Nemoy.
