    Paperback´ Illuminationen PDF EPUB ´ illuminationen book, Illuminationen eBookA wide ranging collection of critical and aesthetic essays exploring everything from the process of literary translation across space and time to the artwork in the age of mechanical reproduction Benjamin’s style at once sensitive and incisive is entrancing though much of the criticism gathered here including pieces on Kafka Baudelaire and Proust feels archaic ahead of its time but dated and shallow today

    Paperback´ Illuminationen PDF EPUB ´ illuminationen book, Illuminationen eBookFor every second of time was the strait gate through which the Messiah might enterThere are hardly enough superlatives for this amazing collection of essays concerning Baudelaire Proust Kafka messianism and the aesthetic tension between the cultic and the exhibitional I had read Unpacking My Library a half dozen times previously and it still forces me to catch my breath The thoughts on Kafka explore the mystical as well as the shock of the modern The shock of the urban and industrial is a recurring theme in these pieces Likewise is the dearth of actual experience and the onslaught of involuntary memory It was a strange juxtaposition that this very morning I put down Illuminations and was enjoying my breakfast Before me in the recent Bookforum was an article by Geoff Dyer about August Sand
