    One thought on “Radio Benjamin”

    1. רדיו בנימין כולל 6 הרצאות נפלאות ומרתקות לבני נוער שנשא המחבר בתוכנית הרדיו. הן עוסקות בנושאים מההיסטוריה ומאירות היבטים מרתקים בתרבות האנושית. רעידת האדמה שהתרחשה בליסבון, משפטי המכשפות, "מרמה בבולי דואר", הבסטיליה בית הכלא הממלכתי הישן של צרפת, כנופיות שודדים בגרמניה של פע [...]

    2. I chose to read this book out of a deep-seated guilt that has remained with me ever since I left grad school and stopped reading scholarly books as a regular activity. Walter Benjamin was a theorist I heard of in several courses in grad school, and I was intrigued with what I heard of his work, though I had never read anything he wrote. So, I figured reading an advanced copy of this book (provided to me free in exchange for a fair review) would be worth doing. I was very pleasantly surprised by [...]

    3. Just imagine how the listener, especially in this case Berlin (and German) children are exposed to the broad knowledge of the world by listening to a 20-30 minutes radio broadcast.Of course, the next book one would like to continue from this specific surviving Benjamin work is Walter Benjamin for Children: An Essay on his Radio Years.

    4. yang pertama-tama menarik saya adalah bagaimana catatan-catatan WB tentang radio dan materi siaran yang ia bikin itu didudukkan dalam situasinyai dilakukan dengan baik oleh pemberi kata pengantar buku ini.lecia rosenthal memuaskan saya dengan pengantar yang bagus.di masanya, WB memang terpesona oleh alat komunikasi satu arah yang bernama radio. suatu alat yang mampu menyembunyikan sumbernya, tapi mampu memancarkan suaranya kemana-mana berlipat ganda. alat yang memancarkan suara ke mana-mana samp [...]

    5. This has been such a fantastic and enjoyable read.As the title implies, it is a collection of works (short stories, radio plays, lessons for children, etc.) that were either broadcast on the radio, produced for it and never broadcast or theoretical essays written about the phenomenon of radio in the early twentieth century Germany and its implications. These vary in length and topic, but none are long, which makes for a quite fun and light read. They deal with a variety of themes, from life in G [...]

    6. I purchased this book after reading the review in the March 2015 issue of Harper's Magazine. Being of French descent, I know very little of pre-war German culture. The little I learned as a child was at best dismissive and at worst highly pejorative.Benjamin's essays provide a delightful basis for exploration. Aimed at children, the essays cover a wide range of topic and never fail to lead to unexpected places. The essay on Toys led me to read about Tinche and then Faust. The one about Berlin di [...]
