This is what Walter Benjamin Wrote:

A Klee painting named ‘Angelus Novus’ shows an angel looking as though  he is about to move away from something he is fixedly contemplating. His  eyes are staring, his mouth is open, his wings are spread. This is how  one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past.  Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe  which keeps piling wreckage upon wreckage and hurls it in front of his  feet. The angel would like to stay, awaken the dead, and make whole what  has been smashed. But a storm is blowing from Paradise; it has got  caught in his wings with such violence that the angel can no longer  close them. The storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which  his back is turned, while the pile of debris before him grows skyward.  This storm is what we call progress.
