9780060892999: A Canticle for Leibowitz

First there was the Fallout, the plagues and the madness. Then the bloodletting of the Simplification began, when the people - those few who were left - turned against the rulers, the teachers and the scientists who had turned the world into a barren desert, where great clouds of wrath had destroyed the forests and the fields. All knowledge was destroyed, all the learned killed - and only Leibowitz managed to save some of his books. And the monks of the Order of Leibowitz kept the sacred relics, copying, illuminating and interpreting the holy fragments, slowly fashioning a new Renaissance in a barbarous and fallen world.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Winner of the 1961 Hugo Award for Best Novel and widely considered one of the most accomplished, powerful, and enduring classics of modern speculative fiction, Walter M. Miller, Jr. s A Canticle for Leibowitz is a true landmark of twentieth-century literature -- a chilling and still-provocative look at a post-apocalyptic future. In a nightmarish ruined world slowly awakening to the light after sleeping in darkness, the infant rediscoveries of science are secretly nourished by cloistered monks dedicated to the study and preservation of the relics and writings of the blessed Saint Isaac Leibowitz. From here the story spans centuries of ignorance, violence, and barbarism, viewing through a sharp, satirical eye the relentless progression of a human race damned by its inherent humanness to recelebrate its grand foibles and repeat its grievous mistakes. Seriously funny, stunning, and tragic, eternally fresh, imaginative, and altogether remarkable, A Canticle for Leibowitz retains its ability to enthrall and amaze. It is now, as it always has been, a masterpiece. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780060892999
