The passages in which these questions are contemplated are long and dramatically static, but also extremely absorbing, and their cumulative effect is to establish a perspective that strongly shapes one's response to the "tales" that follow. Those tales feature such characters as Josefa, the daughter of a nineteenth-century Swedish lighthouse keeper; Bernhard Enberg, a choirboy with a promising singing voice who grows up to be a sailor; and Fiorello, servant to a Renaissance Italian nobleman. One finds oneself viewing these people, great and lowly alike, as if from on high, recognizing all of them as poignantly tiny and terribly vulnerable creatures whose survival, in a world rife with wars, accidents, and the unpremeditated butchery of innocents, seems scarcely comprehensible except as the result of some grand cosmic act of protection.
