Isaiah Berlin, Building

This is the third volume of Isaiah Berlin’s letters, following Flourishing and Enlightening.

In the period covered here (1960-75) Isaiah Berlin creates Wolfson College, Oxford; John F. Kennedy becomes US President (and is assassinated); Berlin dines with JFK on the day he is told of the Soviet missile bases in Cuba; the Six-Day Arab-Israeli war of 1967 creates problems that are still with us today; Richard M. Nixon succeeds Johnson as US President and resigns over Watergate; and the long agony of the Vietnam War grinds on in the background.

At the same time Berlin publishes some of his most important work, including Four Essays on Liberty — the key texts of his liberal pluralism — and the essays later included in Vico and Herder. He talks on the radio, appears on television and in documentary films and gives numerous lectures, especially his celebrated Mellon Lectures, later published as The Roots of Romanticism.

Ingeborg Bachmann — Paul Celan, Herzzeit

Ingeborg Bachmann und Paul Celan.
Lange war ihre Liebe ein großes Geheimnis, jetzt ist sie dokumentiert. Der Briefwechsel zwischen Ingeborg Bachmann und Paul Celan, zwei der bedeutendsten deutschsprachigen Dichter, ist das bewegende Zeugnis zweier Menschen, die sich liebten und gegenseitig verletzten, die einander brauchten und doch nicht miteinander leben konnten. Fast zwanzig Jahre lang kämpfen sie in ihren Briefen um die Liebe und Freundschaft des anderen, wiederholt herrscht Schweigen, immer wird der Briefwechsel wiederaufgenommen – bis es 1961 endgültig zum Bruch kommt.

Orwell in letters

June 4th, 2010  |  by  |  published in biografie, English texts | Comments Off on Orwell in letters

I have been reading a selection of Orwell’s letters. This is like reading a short version of his biography and indeed, it might be a good idea to read both the letters and a good biography at the same time. And one should add his diaries as they are now being published day by day […]
