The "Berlin Chronicle" Notices

The "Berlin Chronicle" Notices

By Walter Benjamin
Translated and with commentary by Carl Skoggard

This book of new research and commentary by Carl Skoggard brings another volume of Walter Benjamin's work into a superb new translation. Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) began to ruminate on his Berlin childhood not long before he fled Germany for good, in 1933. The resulting "Berlin Chronicle" notices––forty in all––explore the ways of memory in relation to place––in light of Benjamin's own memories and in relation to his native place. Rich in themselves, these "Chronicle" notices provide a unique key to the esoteric texts Benjamin would produce for his much-loved Berlin Childhood circa 1900.
