Synopsis:

A final compilation of essays by the award-winning late author of Austerlitz explores the themes of the power of memory and personal history, the links between images in the arts and life, and the existence of ghosts in different places and artifacts.


Review:

"Sebald was a polymath whose hybrid narratives link him with such resisters of fixed classification as Borges, Calvino,the antiquarian Robert Burton, and Guy Davenport....[I]t's good to have these further products of his life-affirming imagination and spirit."

Kirkus, 01/01/2005

Review:

"Sebald as reader, like Sebald as writer, homes in utterly unselfconsciously on the aspects of these writers that interest him most, often to the total disregard of anything else about their work. Though Sebald taught literature at the University of East Anglia for 30 years, his anxiety about academic life betrays itself in his charming yet highly untraditional criticism, which is much more deeply influenced by his personal obsessions than by trends in literary scholarship. Even the essays here that adhere most strictly to scholarly conventions--several first appeared in academic journals--are typically meandering almost in defiance of their academic trappings....'There are many forms of writing; only in literature, however, can there be an attempt at restitution over and above the mere recital of facts, and over and above scholarship.' Campo Santo demonstrates that the boundary between the two is more permeable than even Sebald thought. In whatever he wrote, from a completely realized work of fiction to the briefest book review, he found a way of achieving his moral imperative.

Ruth Franklin, Slate, 03/14/2005

Sebald exemplified the best kind of cosmopolitan literary intelligence-humane, digressive, deeply erudite, unassuming and tinged with melancholy. . . . In [Campo Santo] Sebald reveals his distinctive tone, as his winding sentences gradually mingle together curiosity and plangency, learning and self-revelation. . . . [Readers will] be rewarded with unexpected illuminations. -The Washington Post Book World This final collection of essays by W. G. Sebald offers profound ruminations on many themes common to his work-the power of memory and personal history, the connections between images in the arts and life, the presence of ghosts in places and artifacts. Some of these pieces pay tribute to the Mediterranean island of Corsica, weaving elegiacally between past and present, examining, among other things, the island s formative effect on its most famous citizen, Napoleon. In others, Sebald examines how the works of Gunter Grass and Heinrich Boll reveal the grave and lasting deformities in the emotional lives of postwar Germans; how Kafka echoes Sebald s own interest in spirit presences among mortal beings; and how literature can be an attempt at restitution for the injustices of the real world. Dazzling in its erudition, accessible in its deep emotion, Campo Santo confirms Sebald s status as one of the great modern writers who divined and expressed the invisible connections that determine our lives.
