              August Sander's photographic portraits of ordinary people in Weimar Germany inspire this uncanny new collection of poems by one of America's most celebrated writers and critics Through his portraits of ordinary people--soldiers, housewives, children, peasants, and city dwellers--...August Sander, the German photographer whose work chronicled the extreme tensions and transitions of the twentieth century, captured a moment in history whose consequences he himself couldn't have predicted. Using these photographs as a lens, Adam Kirsch's poems connect the legacy of the First World War with the turmoil of the Weimar Republic with moving immediacy and meditative insight, and foreshadow the Nazi era. Kirsch writes both urgently and poignantly about these photographs, creating a unique dialogue of word and image that will speak to all readers interested in history, past and present.

              Lionel Trilling, regarded at the time of his death in 1975 as America's preeminent literary critic, is today often seen as a relic of a vanished era. In this book, the author shows that Trilling, far from being obsolete, is essential to understanding our current crisis of literar...y confidence - and to overcoming it.
