Offering a unique and original reading of Sebald's dazzling oeuvre, this title argues that his work is concerned first and foremost with the problem of modernity. It focuses in particular on the numerous archival institutions and processes that lie at the very heart of modernity and are repeatedly thematised throughout Sebald's work.
