    work of art in age of mechanical reproduction
    1935

    harvard university press: benjamin’s famous “work of art” essay sets out his boldest thoughts—on media and on culture in general—in their most realized form, while retaining an edge that gets under the skin of everyone who reads it. in this essay the visual arts of the machine age morph into literature and theory and then back again to images, gestures, and thought.
    this essay, however, is only the beginning of a vast collection of writings that the editors have assembled to demonstrate what was revolutionary about benjamin’s explorations on media. long before marshall mcluhan, benjamin saw that the way a bullet rips into its victim is exactly the way a movie or pop song lodges in the soul.
