Through the Words of Others is a personal reflection by Stéphanie Serra on libraries, her own library, and the books that mold and mature one’s intellect.
Serra’s essay contains multitudes, multiple passages from authors who are foundational for her. A study of the power of books through the lens of her
library. Responsible for the English version, I became legion in turn as I rendered a text interlaced with quotations from a range of authors already
translated by other hands.
