Luminous Debris: Reflecting on Vestige in Provence & Languedoc
Gustaf Sobin. Interpreting vestige with the eloquence of a poet & the knowledge of an archaeologist, Sobin explores the landscapes of Provence & Languedoc in S. France. Drawing on prehistory, protohistory, & Gallo-Roman antiquity, the 26 essays here focus on particular places & artifacts for their relevance. A Bronze Age earring & the rippling wave pattern in Massalian ceramic are more than archival curiosities; they invite inquiry & speculation on existence itself. As much travel writing as meditative discourse, this book is enhanced by a prose that questions & reflects on the materials invoked. Sobin engages the reader with precise descriptions of those very materials & the messages to be gleaned from their examination, be they existential, ethical, or political. Illustrated.
