Review of 'Against Interpretation' on 'GoodReads'
Sontag is excellent as always, and is a critic sorely missed in culture and art. Some of the essays are a somewhat irrelevant (theatre and book reviews in the 1960s) but serve as a nice historical document. Where this book really hits home is where Sontag always does - in critical analysis. The concluding essay, One Culture and the new sensibility and an analysis of science fiction films with comparisons to cultures of destruction, The imagination of disaster are favourites.
