A profound vision of the inseparability of Western philosophy and its living language

With his hallmark discernment, George Steiner presents in The Poetry of Thought his magnum opus, staking out his claim for the essential oneness of great thought and great style. Steiner spans the entire history of Western philosophy as it entwines with literature, finding that, as Sartre stated, in all philosophy there is "a hidden literary prose."

About the Author:

Extraordinary Fellow of Churchill College at Cambridge University and the author of dozens of books (The Death of Tragedy, After Babel, Martin Heidegger, In Bluebeard’s Castle), George Steiner is one of the world’s foremost intellectuals.

Review:

“No one now writing on literature can match Steiner as polymath and polyglot, and few can equal the verve and eloquence of his writing.”
- Robvert Alter, The Washington Post

“Illumination and attractively undogmatic”
- The New Yorker
