Real Presences - Kindle edition by Steiner, George/5(16).   George Steiner has written a great many books during his long and distinguished career as a literary critic, essayist, philosopher, novelist, translator, and : Open Road Media. Leanne Payne was founder and president of Pastoral Care Ministries and the author of many articles and books, including Real Presence, Restoring the Christian Soul, and Listening Prayer/5(18). George Steiner’s Real Presences is a doozy of a book. It’s short and inviting, but contains some of the most complex ideas about language and art that I have ever read. Steiner’s supposition is that 4/5(1).

To read this book by Steiner really is something of an event/5(15).

Real Presences 1 is Steiner's personal manifesto against the deconstruction movement in modern literature (and art and music). It is not a book that many scientists would read, let alone re-read. And yet we have read and re-read the book; it has made us laugh and cry. Editions for Real Presences: (Paperback published in ), (Kindle Edition published in ), (Paperback published in ),
