Editorial Reviews

Review

“It takes someone of George Steiner’s stature to tackle this theme head-on . . . A new book by George Steiner is always an event.” —The New York Times

“This passionately argued essay ranges fluently over aesthetics, linguistics, philosophy, post-structuralism, the range of Western culture.” —Publishers Weekly

“Sophisticated readers looking for highly learned literary criticism will find much here to ponder.” —Library Journal

“A real tour de force . . . All the virtues of the author’s astounding intelligence and compelling rhetoric are evident from the first sentence onward.” —The Journal of Religion

About the Author

He has been professor emeritus of English and comparative literature at the University of Geneva, professor of comparative literature and fellow at the University of Oxford, and professor of poetry at Harvard University. He lives in Cambridge, England, where he has been an Extraordinary Fellow at Churchill College at the University of Cambridge since 1969.
