Elaine Scarry: on beauty and social justice

right.  January is the month of financial statements and reconciling bank statements to piles of little receipts.  Can't think.  Can't write.  Can listen, so here is a long, quite wonderful essay by Elaine Scarry on beauty, pain and justice.  

It was given at Cambridge University, 21 May 2010, at a Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities conference.
