Edward Said is Dead. Long Live Edward Said.

I am amazed that I forgot to post a tribute to one of the most important intellectuals in the modern era… Edward Said.

Here is what ZNet, undoubtedly the intellectuals’ collective of the modern world, has to say about the man and his work:

“ZNet mourns the passing of Edward Said. It is possible, and desirable, to both mourn and organize when what has been lost is a great and soulful presence.”
