Duties and Delights: The Life of a Go-between
Tzvetan Todorov is one of Europe s leading intellectuals. Beyond his work in cultural and literary theory, philosophy and psychoanalysis, Todorov s influence is extraordinarily far-reaching specifically because of the clarity of his writing and his refusal to be bound by systems of thought and disciplinary straitjackets.
Todorov s many writings include The Poetics of Prose, The Conquest of America, Mikhail Bakhtin: The Dialogical Principle, Facing the Extreme: Moral Life in the Concentration Camps, On Human Diversity, Hope and Memory, Imperfect Garden: Lessons from the Twentieth Century and The New World Disorder: Reflections of a European.
Duties and Delights presents a series of interviews with Tzvetan Todorov which illuminate the paths that he has taken, the paths that he has crossed and the paths that he has opened up for others."
