9780141190082: Under the Sign of Saturn: Essays (Penguin Modern Classics)

Susan Sontag's third essay collection brings together her most important critical writing from 1972 to 1980. In these provocative and hugely influential works she explores some of the most controversial artists and thinkers of our time, including her now-famous polemic against Hitler's favourite film-maker, Leni Riefenstahl, and the cult of fascist art, as well as a dazzling analysis of Hans-Jürgen Syberberg's Hitler, a Film from Germany. There are also highly personal and powerful explorations of death, art, language, history, the imagination and writing itself.

Review:

'No one has written more passionately about Antonin Artaud...Nor has anyone before Sontag taken the pains to demolish so thoroughly Hitler's favourite moveimaker, Leni Riefenstahl. This is one of the crack essays in the book.' Chicago Tribune

About the Author:

Susan Sontag was born in Manhattan in 1933 and studied at the universities of Chicago, Harvard and Oxford.
