The Voices of Marrakesh – Elias Canetti
We’re back with another in our occasional summer series of Books That Matter, chosen and discussed by John Simopoulos, Dean of Degrees of St Catherine’s College, Oxford. Today, we’re talking about “a sublime monster”, as John describes him – Elias Canetti, the Bulgarian-born novelist who wrote in German and won the Nobel Prize in Literature. While some of Canetti’s works are relatively inaccessible, The Voices of Marrakesh is an ideal introduction to the work of one of the major intellectual figures of the 20th century.
