Walter Benjamin PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Walter Benjamin free pdf Radical critic of a European civilisation plunging into darkness, yet commemorator of the humane traditions of the old bourgeoisie - such was Walter Benjamin in the later 1930s. This third volume, in a four-volume set, offers 27 brilliant pieces - nineteen of which have never before been translated. "A Berlin Childhood around 1900," marks the first appearance in English of one of the greatest German works of the 20th Century. No less remarkable are the previously untranslated second version of Benjamin's most famous essay, 'The Work of Art in the Age of Its Technological Reproducibility', with its striking insights into the relations between technology and aesthetics, and "German Men and Women," a book in which Benjamin collects twenty-six letters by distinguished Germans from 1783 to 1883 in an effort to preserve what he called the true humanity of German tradition from the debasement of fascism.
