Description
These sixteen moving essays contain Sebald's trademark themes--the power of memory and personal history, the connections between images in the arts and life, the existence of ghosts in both places and artifacts. Four essays pay tribute to Corsica, weaving elegiacally between past and present on the Mediterranean isle. In "A Little Excursion to Ajaccio," Sebald visits the birthplace of Napoleon and muses on the hints of a great man's future in his childhood home. Several essays on European writers such as Kafka. Nabokov, and Gunter Grass blend criticism with political observation and memoir, examining 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 place beside Proust and Nabokov, great writers who perceived the invisible connections that determine our lives.
