Dust jacket notes: "Since her death in 1943 at the age of thirty-four, Simone Weil has emerged as a legendary figure who lived the contradictions of our era more intensely and consciously than anyone else. A French Jew who broke with Judaism and wavered on the brink of Roman Catholicism, the daughter of a respected French physician, the sister of one of this century's great mathematicians, Simone Weil devoted herself to a pilgrimage in search of truth and God amid the poverty and misery of the poor. This frail woman's passionate search led her from her life as a brilliant student of philosophy to her jobs in the 1930s as an unskilled worker in factories, her enlistment with the Spanish Loyalists, her work in trade unions, and to her confrontation with the crisis of contemporary religious and scientific faith. Her struggle to understand these experiences was expressed in some of the most penetrating literary, political, and philosophical essays of this century. A generation of intellectuals, including T.S. Eliot, Martin Buber, Dwight MacDonald, and Susan Sontag, has been fascinated and haunted by this French saint-philosopher-activist."
