Praise

“Walter Benjamin is the most important German aesthetician and literary critic of [the twentieth] century.”—Sunday Times

“He drew, from the obscure disdained German baroque, elements of the modern sensibility: the taste for allegory, surrealist shock effects, discontinuous utterance, a sense of historical catastrophe.”—Susan Sontag
