Product Details

Praise

“A fitting Bible for the booming Benjamin cult.”—Guardian

“The definitive biography … The crisp style and wealth of original letters and journals helpfully illuminate the life and work of this particularly difficult thinker.”—Observer

“Momme Brodersen’s biography supersedes all preceding efforts. It is highly intelligent in its uses of the historical-intellectual background. It draws revealingly on Benjamin’s own writings, letters and journals, keeping a certain critical distance from one of the spellbinding literary-philosophic presences of this century. This book merits close attention.”—George Steiner

“Brodersen has done impressive research and excavates a great deal of fascinating material. His book is indispensable for unravelling Benjamin’s life and work.”—Marshall Berman

“Perhaps the book’s finest virtue is that it arouses a desire to know more about Benjamin and above all to read him.”—Seattle Weekly
