"'As a critic, Steiner has written on the history of tragedy, on the implications of translation, on the homelessness of modern writers, on philosophy and on the varieties of literary difficulty with unparalleled acumen and erudition.' Independent"Reseña del editor:
Are great works of art, literature and music 'creations' or 'inventions'? Does the mathematician 'invent' or 'discover'? Exploring an often neglected field, this book asks whether the current revolutions in our means of communication and in the biological sciences, may bring with them radical changes in the concept of individual creation and of poetic and philosophical invention. Are we returning to ancient anonymities and collectivities in aesthetic and intellectual experience? Are music and architecture now at the frontier where, as Plato would have it, truth and beauty meet? In Grammars of Creation the eminent critic George Steiner brings his unparalleled acumen and erudition to bear on these and other questions.
'This is a mesmerising book . . . Expressed in prose that is unfailingly apt, luminous and evocative.' Guardian
