Is Nothing Sacred? The Herbert Read Memorial Lecture
- Wear, Delese
- Date of entry: Jun-22-1994
In this essay on the spirit and the sacred, Rushdie examines the importance of language and literature in a secular, rationalist, materialist culture. He makes a case for literature as a privileged arena so that we can, "within the secrecy of our own heads . . . hear voices talking about everything in every possible way."
