Several people emailed me asking for the source of the Benjamin
essay I referred to in my last posting. Sorry I didn't have my
copy of the essay "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical
Reproduction" handy last night.

I got my copy from his book "Illuminations" Translated by Harry Zohn.
New York: Harcourt Brace, 1968.

Walter Benjamin was a German critic/philosopher. I'd suggest doing
a search in your local univeristy/college library. You will probably
find the essay in other books on Benjamin's writings.

Hope this helps.
