Most of these essays were written as occasional pieces at the request of insistent editors. They have the roughness of material produced in a hurry to meet a deadline.
I am embarrassed by that fact; and more embarrassed because three essays deal with writers whose languages I have only a perfunctory knowledge of, and can appreciate only through translation – Aristotle, Galileo, Camus. Only an imperfect critic dares to comment on literature in translation.
