MetadataShow full item record
This is certainly an unusual book (Jean Bollack, The Art of Reading: From Homer to Paul Celan (translated by Catherine Porter and Susan Tarrow), published by the Center for Hellenic Studies and distributed by Harvard University Press, 2017. 438 pages. Paperback. $29.95) one that demands an unusual and unusually long review, and I am grateful to Arion, an appropriate place for its appearance, for having given me the opportunity to write it. Let me begin by quoting an extract (slightly modified and with some cuts) from the In memoriam I wrote after Jean Bollack’s death in 2012. ©2018 Arion : Journal of Humanities and the Classics, Boston University Arion.
