Simone Weil, an anthology

Philosopher, theologian, critic, sociologist, political activist -- Simone Weil was among the foremost thinkers of our time. The present anthology offers a generous collection of her work, representing her amazing range of interests, and including essays never before translated into English and many which have long been out of print. It amply confirms Elizabeth Hardwick's words that Simone Weil was "one of the most brilliant and original minds of twentieth century France." -- From publisher's description
