Fiche détaillée de "After babel"

When it first appeared in 1975, AFTER BABEL created a sensation, quickly establishing itself as both a controversial and seminal study of literary theory. Taking issue with modern linguistics, author George Steiner finds the root of the "Babel problem" in our deep instinct for privacy and territory, noting that every people has in its language a unique body of shared secrecy. This new edition updates the bibliography and includes Russian and Eastern European material.
