“The author’s breath of erudition is to be mareveld at. Despite all the need for compression imposed on him by the tremendous scope of his subject matter, he more than once achieves start insights in his descriptions of variaous phenomena n all their complexity and inherent conflict. His brillant study of Shakespeare and his portrait of Tolstoi, for example, belong to the best pages that i have ever read about the complex nature of the man genius.” Thomas Mann
