Editorial Reviews

"Susan Sontag's essays are great interpretations and even fulfillments of what is really going on." -Carlos Fuentes"[Susan Sontag] is one of the most interesting and valuable critics we possess, a writer from whom it's continually possible to learn." -Richard Gilman, The New Republic"She has come to symbolize the writer and thinker in many variations: as analyst, rhapsodist, and roving eye, as public scold and portable conscience." -Time magazine"Miss Sontag emerges from Styles of Radical Will . . . as an open and vulnerable intellect, a consciousness in process of transformation . . . Her first essay, 'The Aesthetics of Silence' is a brilliant and important account of Western tradition of artistic revolt against language, against thinking, against consciousness." -Robert Sklar, The Nation"It should be remembered that Miss Sontag has now written four of the most valuable intellectual documents of the past ten years: 'Against Interpretation,' 'Notes on Camp,' The Aesthetics of Silence,' and 'Trip to Hanoi.' In the world in which she's chosen to live, she continues to be the best there is." -The New York Times Book Review
