ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book Learning Laughter, by Stephen Spender. Stephen Spender's book is a sympathetic report on life as he found it in Israel, which, even by his British standards, is austere. In spite of his vast good will, the tenor of Spender's book is gloomy, accounting, as it must terrible poverty, political uneasiness, disunity and tragedy.
