Product Description

Review

Walter Benjamin is the most important German aesthetician and literary critic of [the twentieth] century. --Sunday Times

He drew, from the obscure disdained German baroque, elements of the modern sensibility: the taste for allegory, surrealist shock effects, discontinuous utterance, a sense of historical catastrophe. --Susan Sontag

About the Author

Walter Benjamin was born in Germany in 1892 and died in Spain in 1940. His other books include Illuminations, The Arcades Project, and, with Verso, One-Way Street, Understanding Brecht, and Walter Benjamin's Archive.

Format: Paperback
I read this slowly, then got a little frustrated, started skimming, then bits really started to hit me, and I had to go back and read what I'd skipped, and found it was all incredibly insightful, and so true. In short, the usual effect a text by Benjamin has on me! If you're interested in baroque drama or concepts of allegory or indeed theories of classical tragedy, this is essential.
