Walter Benjamin is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic intellectual figures of this century. Not only was he a thinker who made an enormous impact with his critical and philosophical writings, he shattered disciplinary and stylistic conventions. This collection, introduced by Susan Sontag, contains the most representative and illuminating selection of his work over a twenty-year period, and thus does full justice to the richness and the multi-dimensional nature of his thought. Included in these pages are aphorisms and townscapes, esoteric meditation and reminiscences of childhood, and reflections on language, psychology, aesthetics and politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The most important German aesthetician and literary critic of this century" - George Steiner "Benjamin was one of the unclassifiable ones ... whose work neither fits the existing order nor introduces a new genre." - Hannah Arendt "Benjamin was the interlocutor of all the demons and angels of storytelling. And this is why he knew its endless secrets. Listen to him." - John Berger "A complex and brilliant writer" - J. M. Coetzee
