From the Publisher:
As one of the foremost public intellectuals of the twentieth century, Hannah Arendt is well known for her writings on political philosophy. Less familiar are her significant contributions to cultural and literary criticism. This edition brings together for the first time Arendt's reflections on literature and culture. The essays include previously unpublished and untranslated material drawn from half a century of engagement with the works of European and American authors, poets, journalists, and literary critics, including such diverse figures as Proust, Melville, Auden, and Brecht.||Intended for a wide readership, this volume has the potential to change our view of Arendt by introducing her not only as one of the leading political theorists of her generation, but also as a serious, committed, and highly original literary and cultural critic. Gottlieb's introduction ties the work together, showing how Arendt developed a form of literary and cultural analysis that is entirely her own.
Author Bio
Hannah Arendt
Hannah Arendt received her B.A. from Koenigsberg University, and also attended universities at Marburg and Freiburg, Germany. She studied with the existentialist philosopher Karl Jaspers at Heidelberg University, and received her Ph.D. there in 1928, at the youthful age of 22. In 1933, as Hitler was poised to rule Germany, Arendt fled to Paris, and from 1934 to 1940, assisted in finding homes in Palestine for homeless or orphaned Jewish children. Before immigrating to the U.S. in 1941, she married Heinrich Bluecher, a professor of philosophy. Arendt worked as a book editor in New York, and as director of various Jewish civic and cultural organizations. She held teaching posts at the University of Chicago, Berkeley, Columbia, Brooklyn College, the New School of Social Research in New York, and received the first full female professorship at Princeton University in 1959. She won numerous awards and honorary degrees, and her writings on totalitarianism and the Jews have earned her a lasting reputation as one of the century's most influential political theorists.
