Reviews

"Esther Leslie's translation reveals that no thought should go un-noted"
--Peter Conrad, Guardian

"This Archive is an object to treasure and has the aura of a reliquary, but Benjamin is no saint. Hidden within this small selection is a profaning giant whom we are only beginning to see."
--Independent

"Enchanting."
--Times Literary Supplement

"The most important German aesthetician and literary critic of the twentieth century."
--George Steiner

"Elegantly brings together the materials of Benjamin's bequest and reminds us of what his friend Theodor Adorno rightly said was its greatest significance for subsequent thinking."
--Frieze

"Charming and beautifully produced."
--Ray Monk, New Statesman
