At Cross Purposes
Published by Hearing Eye
There were limits to the hospitality even of a Parisian monastery in the tenth century, as a wandering clerk from somewhere east of the Rhine discovers to his cost. The original bi-lingual text (in Old High German and Latin), which records the story of this unusual and amusing encounter is presented and translated here by Raymond Geuss.
Illustrated with two papercuts by Emily Johns.
Letterpress printed by Peter Lloyd at The Holbeche Press.
Raymond Geuss, Professor of philosophy at Cambridge University and author of the seminal The Idea of a Critical Theory and Morality, Culture & History is also a poet.
