Product Information

"The most important German aesthetician and literary critic of the twentieth century." - George Steiner Praise for The Arcades Project: "A towering literary event." - New York Times "Benjamin is important because of his insight into the cultural consequences of capitalism, an insight that gives us a style of thinking about the now inescapable culture of consumerism," - Harper's "A magnificent opus." - J. M. Coetzee, Guardian"
