When he stands before Giorgione's La Tempesta, Berger sees not only the painting but our whole notion of time, sweeping us away from a lost Eden. With the luminous essays in Keeping a Rendezvous we are given to see the world as Berger sees it--to explore themes suggested by the work of Jackson Pollack or J.M.W. Turner, to contemplate the wonder of Paris. Rendezvous are manifold here: it can be found between critic and art, artist and subject, subject and the unknown. Most significant are the rendezvous between author and reader, as we discover our perceptions informed by Berger's eloquence and moral imagination.
