1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Limits of Art relies not on a single editor, but on a community of critics ranging across the centuries, many of them timeless authors themselves ... This community of great critics has returned again and again to certain touchstones in our literature: utterances that brush up against the unutterable; words that "touch the limits of art." This renowned anthology gathers these touchstones, along with their nominations for inclusion--the words of the critics themselves"--Jacket
