Where the Stress Falls

by Susan Sontag

Where the Stress Falls Synopsis

Two decades of indispensable work by a great American writer-more than forty longer and shorter pieces that illustrate a deeply felt, kaleidoscopic array of interests, passions, observations, and ideasThirty-five years after her first collection, the classic Against Interpretation, America's most important essayist chose more than forty longer and shorter pieces from the previous twenty years. "e;Reading,"e; the first of three sections, includes ardent pieces on writers from Sontag's own private canon-Machado de Assis, Barthes, W. G. Sebald, Borges, Tsvetaeva, and Elizabeth Hardwick. In the second section, "e;Seeing,"e; she shares her passions for film, dance, photography, painting, opera, and theater. And in the final section, "e;There and Here,"e; Sontag explores her own commitments to the work (and activism) of conscience and to the vocation of the writer.
