Theodor W. Adorno, Notes to Literature (combined edition) – Columbia University Press, 2019, edited by Rolf Tiedemann, translated by Shierry Weber Nicholson, with a new introduction by Paul Kottman.

I’d missed this when it was published late last year.

Notes to Literature is a collection of the great social theorist Theodor W. Adorno’s essays on such writers as Mann, Bloch, Hölderlin, Siegfried Kracauer, Goethe, Benjamin, and Stefan George. It also includes his reflections on a variety of subjects, such as literary titles, the physical qualities of books, political commitment in literature, the light-hearted and the serious in art, and the use of foreign words in writing. This edition presents this classic work in full in a single volume, with a new introduction by Paul Kottman.
