Walter Benjamin by Gershom Gerhard Scholem
Book DescriptionGershom Scholem was a precocious teenager when he became Walter Benjamin's close friend. His account of that relationship - crucial for both men until Benjamin's suicide in 1940 - is at once a tribute to his friend's genius and a lament for his personal and, as Scholem sees it, intellectual self-destructiveness. Prickly but also poignant, this book revisits passionate engagements with Marxism and the Kabbalah, Germany and Palestine, as if Scholem sought to summon up his friend's spirit, to have the last word in the argument that might have saved his life.
