I'm using this book as a key text in my dissertation so finding out theres a kindle version too is great! It means I can do quick word searches to find specific quotes that I need as I don't always remember to take the physical book on my travels!
Great book too! Hard to read the first time (as it was written in the 18th century), but once you've read it once or twice you get used to the way it's written.

Plus at under £4 it's a no brainer to have a second copy on my laptop/kindle.

Easier than any online reading, page turning back and forth necessary to fully take on the arguments. Essential to appreciate aesthetic approaches throughout the eighteenth-century.

This book puts forward the interesting proposition that it is obscurity and suggestiveness, rather than clarity, which captures the imagination. This argument could be applied to philosophy as well as beauty.

Interesting writings on beauty and the sublime. Although I do find Burke's writing to be a bit heavy for me personally but it's not unreadable.
It was very useful for my essay though! Full of great stuff, when you get past the dense language!

The book quality's pretty poor so you wouldn't, say, give it as a gift) but it's hard to find this book so recommended if you're particularly keen to get your hands on it.

This is an amazing Book. I love Burke, his theories are so profound and also so relevant even to us today. Click here even to see how they are still used.
