      aged, but still invaluable in a way, for an opening into the field for the uninitiated / people like me who back then just didn't know where to begin. i mostly bought this book because it had one essay necessary for school reading at the time, but it ended up being rather a critical point of reference (if only for the names it mentions and compiles) over the last three years.
