Thanks, and boy am I shitfaced. This happens to be the one book
by Benjamin I already own, and I didn't even know this material
was under my nose.
>This isn't a bad place to start with Benjamin, also. This book
>also has the famous "work of art" essay.
"... in the age of mechanical reproduction". I didn't get
anything out of this. What am I missing?
I read a couple of other essays, "Unpacking my library"and
probably the Kafka stuff.
A number of people I respect are raving about Benjamin. I'm led
to believe he's the best of his cohort. So what is his secret?
What other books should I read by him and why?
