Winner of the 1961 Hugo Award for Best Novel and widely considered one of the most accomplished powerful and enduring classics of modern speculative fiction Walter M Miller Jr s A Canticle for Leibowitz is a true landmark of twentieth century literature a chilling and still provocative look at a post apocalyptic future In a nightmarish ruined world slowly awakening to the light after sleeping in darkness the infant rediscoveries of science are secretly nourished by cloistered monks dedicated to the study and preservation of the relics and writings of the blessed Saint Isaac Leibowitz From here the story spans centuries of ignorance violence and barbarism viewing through a sharp satirical eye the relentless progression of a human race damned by its inherent humanness to recelebrate its grand foibles and repeat its grievous mistakes Seriously funny stunning and tragic eternally fresh imaginative and altogether remarkable A Canticle for Leibowitz retains its ability to enthrall and amaze It is now as it always has been a masterpiece
