Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Nicholsen (environment and community, Antioch Univ.) contends that Adorno's work has suffered neglect, as compared with that of his colleague Walter Benjamin. This neglect stems from the failure of critics to consider adequately the form and method of Adorno's writing. For him, imagination was the key tool to study aesthetic activity. Through "exact imagination" Adorno tried to portray the work of diverse writers and musicians. In these exercises, Adorno devoted particular attention to his subjects' "late work." A careful study, valuable for students of literary theory.?David Gordon, Bowling Green State Univ., Ohio

"Nicholsen's Exact Imagination, Late Work is the distilled, reflectedproduct of countless hours alongside, and deeply within, Adorno'slanguages. Her brilliant achievement here is to have demonstrated theemphatic intimacy between Adorno's aesthetics and his compositions." Tom Huhn , College of Letters and Philosophy Department, Wesleyan University
