In l Susan Sontag wrote Illness as Metaphor a classic work described by Newsweek as one of the most liberating books of its time A cancer patient herself when she was writing the book Sontag shows how the metaphors and myths surrounding certain illnesses especially cancer add greatly to the suffering of the patients and often inhibit them from seeking proper treatment By demystifying the fantasies surrounding cancer Sontag shows cancer for what it is just a disease Cancer she argues is not a curse not a punishment certainly not an embarrassment and highly curable if good treatment is found early enough p Almost a decade later with the outbreak of a new stigmatized disease replete with mystifications and punitive metaphors Sontag wrote a sequel to Illness as Metaphor extending the argument of the earlier book to the AIDS pandemic p p These two essays published together as Illness as Metaphor and Aids and Its Metaphors have been translated in many languages all over the world and continue to have enormous impact and influence on the thinking of medical professionals and above all on the lives of many thousands of patients and caregivers p p Author Biography Susan Sontag has written four novels i The Benefactor Death Kit The Volcano Lover i and i In America i which won the National Book Award for fiction a collection of stories i I etcetera i several plays including i Alice in Bed i and five books of essays among them i Against Interpretation i and i On Photography i which won the National Book Critics Circle Prize for criticism Her books are translated into twenty three languages In she was awarded the Jerusalem Prize for the body of her work p, In a group of Poles led by Maryna Zalewska Poland s greatest actress travel to California to found a utopian commune Maryna who has renounced her career is accompanied by her small son and husband in her entourage is a rising young writer who is in love with her The novel portrays a West that is still largely empty where white settlers confront native Californians and Asian coolies The image of America and of California as fantasy as escape as radical simplification constantly meets a more complex reality The commune fails and most of the migrants go home but Maryna stays and triumphs on the American stage br br i In America i is a big juicy surprising book about a woman s search for self transformation about the fate of idealism about the world of the theater that will captivate its readers from the first page It is Sontag s most delicious most brilliant achievement, Renacida es el primer volumen de los diarios de Susan Sontag editado por su hijo David Rieff br Ensayista novelista Premio de la Paz de los libreros alemanes Premio Pr ncipe de Asturias de las letras Susan Sontag fue una de las intelectuales m s implacables e inconformistas del siglo XX Renacida es el primer volumen de sus diarios personales editados por su hijo David Rieff br br Afirmar que estos diarios son reveladores es un dr stico eufemismo Uno de los principales dilemas en mi decisi n de publicarlos ha sido que al menos en la ltima etapa de su vida mi madre no fue en ning n sentido una persona proclive a la confidencia En particular evitaba hasta donde le era posible sin negarla toda referencia a su homosexualidad o todo reconocimiento de su propia ambici n As que mi decisi n sin duda viola su intimidad No hay otra manera de describirlo con imparcialidad El criterio de selecci n fue determinado en parte por mi impresi n de que la crudeza y el retrato sin retoques que estos materiales presentan de una Susan Sontag joven que de modo consciente y con determinaci n acometi la creaci n de una identidad que deseaba era el aspecto m s fascinante de los diarios Por ello decid titular este volumen Renacida procedente de una frase que figura al comienzo de los primeros diarios pues me parece que compendia lo que mi madre fue a partir de su infancia David Rieff, This the second of three volumes of Susan Sontag s journals and notebooks begins where the first volume left off in the middle of the s It traces and documents Sontag s evolution from fledgling participant in the artistic and intellectual world of New York City to world renowned critic and dominant force in the world of ideas with the publication of the groundbreaking i Against Interpretation i in br br i As Consciousness is Harnessed to Flesh i follows Sontag through the turbulent years of the s from her trip to Hanoi at the peak of the Vietnam War to her time making films in Sweden up to and the beginning of the Reagan era This is an invaluable record of the inner workings of one of the most inquisitive and analytical thinkers of the twentieth century at the height of her power It is also a remarkable document of one individual s political and moral awakening
