9780141190051: Styles of Radical Will (Penguin Modern Classics)

This collection of essays contains some of the most important pieces of criticism of the twentieth century, including the classics 'The Aesthetics of Silence', a brilliant account of language, thought and consciousness, and 'Trip to Hanoi', written during the Vietnam War. Here too is an excoriating account of America's identity and future, a robust and surprising discussion of pornography and other richly rewarding writings on art, film, literature and politics.

Review:

'Susan Sontag's essays are great interpretations, and even fulfillments of what is really going on.' - Carlos Fuentes
