(E) Sebald Dictionary
[Translated by Mark Waudby]
The sudden death of the writer W. G. Sebald in December 2001, came as a shock to the world literary scene. Sebald addressed many of the major issues of the 20th century. A pro-European outlook, an awareness of the meta-journey, anti-moral agonism, the aftermath of war, the figure of the writer, erudition, a mix of registers and genres, history and personal memory, and a devotion to archives make it fully pertinent today.
