Lucky we are to have such a staunch advocate “on behalf of literature”

“I fear non-existence. When life goes on and one doesn’t experience anything anymore, one is no longer there.”

Marcel Reich-Raniki, German literary critic

And on a completely unrelated note:

”I became obsessed with the terrifying thought that these texts would expose me completely to the public at large as I really was, namely a trickster and a deceiver and nothing more, a philosopher who knew nothing about the history of philosophy or about Marx.”

–Louis Althusser, author of Pour Marx (In support of Marx)
