Where the Stress Falls: Essays
Susan Sontag (au). Sontag’s earliest idea of what a writer should be was “someone who is interested in everything”. This collection includes more than 40 pieces from the last two decades that illustrate her kaleidoscopic array of interests, passions, observations, & ideas. Offers ardent considerations of writers from her private canon: Marina Tsvetaeva, Randall Jarrell, Roland Barthes, Borges, & Elizabeth Hardwick. There is a series of incisive encounters with film, dance, photography, painting, opera, & theater. Explores her own commitments: to the work (& activism) of conscience, to the concreteness of historical understanding, & to the vocation of the writer. “A brilliant appraisal of some of the most significant aesthetic & moral issues of the late 20th cent.”
