Language and Silence: Essays on Language, Literature, and the Inhuman

'“A keenly discriminating literary mind at work on what it loves.” —The New York Times Book Review “An extraordinarily sharp, brilliant, and thoughtful discussion of the strange conditions into which modern writing has worked itself . . . Very few writers today have as much that is worthwhile to say on today’s writing as does the author.” —The Christian Science Monitor“Whoever has valued and needed this book for its insights into some one particular matter . . . will upon rereading discover the astounding breadth of attention in [it]: from Homer to Thomas Mann, from Marshall McLuhan to The Warsaw Diary of Chaim Kaplan. In each of these essays, a single sentence, and often more than one, can endlessly provoke and illuminate thought.” —John Felstiner'
