The book also includes two more essays, one on Kafka and another on Proust, which I found very interesting and insightful, albeit unexpected considering the book's title. I did find a few connections between these essays and the one on the mechanical reproduction of art, but not many. It's possible that I'm missing something, and this is definitely a book that I will re-read some time in the future.
John Berger's "Ways of Seeing" was very influenced by Benjamin's essay; you might well find Berger an easier guide to the change in art.
'The man who appreciates the original will not buy a reproduction; neither will the man who can't.'
