Ernst Gombrich

The writing of 'Swansongs', which is devoted to methods of working with a text, was inspired by the author's experience working in the monitoring service in the Second World War. He was responsible for listening and recording foreign broadcast news, which were then linguistically revised. This work was carried out by groups of archivists and journalists, whose views on methods of handling text differed significantly. In 'Swansongs', Ernst Gombrich adopts the archivist's view, which he defended.
