Walter Benjamin's "Arcades Project" (Passagenwerk)

I've read many of his essays (e.g., on Kafka, Baudelaire) but not this unfinished megawork. Some day.

Walking around the Shore today--pics to follow in some other posts--I thought of this work: the sweet dream (delusion) that the sum of the parts equals the whole.
