A Canticle for Leibowitz – Dystopias and Apocalypses – Extra Sci Fi

From Extra Credits.

A Canticle for Leibowitz is a book about cycles and violence–about the cost of progress. But it is also about the persistence of humanity’s quest for knowledge and endless resilience. Unlike other post-apocalyptic fiction tropes, it is focused on the lives and goings of everyday people, rather than on the setting itself, and is a critical work to study if you want to understand the post-apocalyptic genre better.
