A passionate defence of beauty from the political arguments against it, but also that beauty does indeed have a positive effect on life.

I am not entirely convinced by her argument that beauty leads to justice--it is too easily disproved by a gloomy glance through history--but Scarry presents it all so, well, beautifully that I can't help but love this book.

Interesting topic. I don't think she developed her ideas well.
