Famous quotes containing the word sontag:

    ... [photographs] trade simultaneously on the prestige of art and the magic of the real.
    —Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    In most modern instances, interpretation amounts to the philistine refusal to leave the work of art alone. Real art has the capacity to make us nervous. By reducing the work of art to its content and then interpreting that, one tames the work of art. Interpretation makes art manageable, conformable.
    —Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    It’s a pleasure to share one’s memories. Everything remembered is dear, endearing, touching, precious. At least the past is safe—though we didn’t know it at the time. We know it now. Because it’s in the past; because we have survived.
    —Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
