Adam Kirsch's "Rocket and Lightship: Meditations on life and letters"

"To become memorable or brilliant, language needs to be fertilized by egotism." 

Adam Kirsch's long but worth reading collection of meditations/prose epigrams on the position of writers WRT past writers, future readers, and the present tense; on the respective roles of literature and science; and the role of culture in a technologically evolving civilization (among other insights).
