REVIEW ð DEALSONWINES.CO.UK Ö George Steiner

By one of the world's foremost literary critics George Steiner's My Unwritten Books meditates upon seven books he had long had in mind to write but never did Massively erudite the essays are also brave unflinching and wholly personal In this fiercely original and audacious work George Steiner tells of seven books which he did not write Because. I d never heard of George Steiner before but apparently he s dazzling superb a phenomenon uniue powerful brilliantly illuminating the polymath s polymath one of the world s foremost intellectuals Here he writes 7 essays on books he might have written but didn t We must be thankful he didn t write the book The Tongues of Eros about language and sex which goes into numbing repulsive and sickeningly poetic detail about his sexual practices with various women who are named by nationality and first initial only After you read this chapter you examine the wizened mischievously grinning man on the book jacket and wail despondently the elderly have they no pride any No discretion Yet strangely there is another essay bemoaning the lack of privacy and absence of discretion in our modern world Essays on Zionism and our love for animals are tendentious and boringThe essay Invidia is among the best about the jealousies that also rans in academia art science etc feel for the winners The essay Chinoiserie is also good It discusses the strange intellectual Joseph Needham author of a 30 volume work entitled Science and Civilization in China in the context of the slipperiness of fact and fiction Always the epistemological status of the two categories has been unstable is the way Steiner puts it In suggesting how Needham s massive work of history science and analytical scholarship might be considered fiction and in comparing it to other scholarly works so passionate so autistic in their rigorous documentation that they become almost surreal and hallucinatory Steiner displays the ingenuity deftness sparkly prose and maybe for lack of a better term relevance that is missing from many of the other essays I actually found myself wishing he had written that book

REVIEW ð DEALSONWINES.CO.UK Ö George Steiner

Nguages; a love for animals greater than for human beings; the costly privilege of exile; a theology of emptiness Yet a unifying perception underlies this diversity The best we have or can produce is only the tip of the iceberg Behind every good book as in a lit shadow lies the book which remained unwritten the one that would have failed better. Fantastic
