"Why is it that life can be represented in tragic stories? It's not that life is essentially tragic, argues Rowan Williams. But the ability to tell tragic stories is foundational to our culture and
our capacity to imagine a shared world. This book is about language and the way meaning is created with others. A small volume that punches above its weight, it reads like a sequel to Williams's Gifford Lectures, The Edge of Words." --Christian Century
