Walter Benjamin did my head in


Just finished Fire Alarm: Reading Walter Benjamin's "Theses on the Concept of History" by Michael Lowy and this drawing sums up how I feel about it.... It's one of those mysterious texts that seems full of meaning, but really nobody knows what the hell Benjamin was on about. I'm now wrestling with Volume 1 of his collected writings, but it's very hard going.
