About the book:

A teacher at Cambridge University, visiting professor at Oxford, widely published essayist and author of such previous collections as After Babel: Aspects of Language and Translation, George Steiner ranks among the preeminent modern practitioners of that peculiar occupation of literary critic. In No Passion Spent he ranges widely: literature in translation; the Bible; the Holocaust; Shakespeare. Much of the work here is informed by Steiner's fear that technology and anti-elitism pose a deadly threat to the high culture that he believes may be humanity's only saving grace.
