"The Silence of Books” by George Steiner

“George Steiner underlines the permanence –always threatened– and the fragility of the book, taking an interest, paradoxically, in those who have wanted its end. To his dazzling approach to reading is added a radical critique of the new forms of illusion, intolerance and barbarism produced in a society that calls itself enlightened. ”
