About this book

The author envisages a new age of museums, which he decribes as 'poetic' to distinguish them from the categorial or didactic model familiar to us. They would draw out the profounder, more elusive meanings inherent in so many artefacts from our past.

"I thought I'd heard all the new ideas until I read this much-needed book."
- Maurice Davies, Deputy Director, Museums Association
