A stilled voice heard

Franklin Foer reviews A Voice Still Heard: Selected Essays of Irving Howe, edited by Nina Howe, at The New York Times.
"A voice still heard. What a sad, anxious assertion of the great critic’s relevance. Alas, the claim is not terribly true, not anymore."
True enough, though, to read the book?

You can consider Howe's essays, some in this collection, some not, linked in Sam Tanenhaus's review a few month's back, also in the Times. And The New Republic has gathered Howe's work as a contributor at its website.
