|Summary, etc.:|| "Michael Gorra uses Goethe's account of his Italian journey as a model for testing the traveler's response to Germany today, and he subjects the shopping arcades of contemporary German cities to the terms of Benjamin's Arcades project. He reads post-Wende Berlin through the novels of Theodor Fontane, examines the role of figurative language, and enlists W.G. Sebald as a guide to the place of fragments and digressions in travel writing." "Replete with the flaneur's chance discoveries - and rich in the delights of the enduring and the ephemeral, of architecture and flood - The Bells in Their Silence offers that rare traveler's tale of Germany while testing the very limits of the travel narrative as a literary form."--BOOK JACKET.
