  • Walter Benjamin: Selected Writings, Volume 1: 1913-1926

    Walter Benjamin was one of the most original and important critical voices of the twentieth century, but until now only a few of his writings have been available in English. Harvard University Press has now undertaken to publish a significant portion of his work in definitive translation, under the general editorship of Michael W. Jennings. This volume, the first of three, will at last give readers of English a true sense of the man and the many facets of his thought. (The magnum opus of Benjamin’s Paris years, The Arcades Project, has been published in a separate volume.)Walter Benjamin emerged from the head-on collision of an idealistic y... [Read More]

  • Walter Benjamin: Selected Writings, 4: 1938-1940

    "Every line we succeed in publishing today...is a victory wrested from the powers of darkness." So wrote Walter Benjamin in January 1940. Not long afterward, he himself would fall prey to those powers, a victim of suicide following a failed attempt to flee the Nazis. However insistently the idea of catastrophe hangs over Benjamin's writings in the final years of his life, the "victories wrested" in this period nonetheless constitute some of the most remarkable twentieth-century analyses of the emergence of modern society. The essays on Charles Baudelaire are the distillation of a lifetime of thinking about the nature of modernity. They record... [Read More]

  • Walter Benjamin: Selected Writings, Volume 3: 1935-1938

    Radical critic of a European civilization plunging into darkness, yet commemorator of the humane traditions of the old bourgeoisie--such was Walter Benjamin in the later 1930s. This volume, the third in a four-volume set, offers twenty-seven brilliant pieces, nineteen of which have never before been translated.The centerpiece, A Berlin Childhood around 1900, marks the first appearance in English of one of the greatest German works of the twentieth century: a profound and beautiful account of the vanished world of Benjamin's privileged boyhood, recollected in exile. No less remarkable are the previously untranslated second version of Benjamin'... [Read More]

  • Words of Light: Theses on the Photography of History

    Here Eduardo Cadava demonstrates that Walter Benjamin articulates his conception of history through the language of photography. Focusing on Benjamin's discussions of the flashes and images of history, he argues that the questions raised by this link between photography and history touch on issues that belong to the entire trajectory of his writings: the historical and political consequences of technology, the relation between reproduction and mimesis, images and history, remembering and forgetting, allegory and mourning, and visual and linguistic representation. The book establishes the photographic constellation of motifs and themes around ... [Read More]

  • Walter Benjamin e la musica - eBook

    Nelle opere giovanili di Walter Benjamin, in modo particolare nei due saggi del 1916 Trauerspiel e tragedia e Il significato del linguaggio nel Trauerspiel e nella tragedia e nel saggio del 1922 "Le affinità elettive" di Goethe, la riflessione sulla musica è centrale e si unisce a una concezione ebraico-messianica della natura, del linguaggio e della storia, dove nel legame con il concetto di redenzione la temporalità musicale viene avvicinata alla temporalità messianica. Si può individuare, in Benjamin, una filosofia della musica che incrocia e investe la sua filosofia della conoscenza e del linguaggio, la sua riflessione etica e estetica
