Críticas:

Praise for Susan Sontag:

"What ultimately matters about Sontag . . . is what she has defended: the life of the mind, and the necessity for reading and writing as 'a way of being fully human.'" --Hilary Mantel, "Los Angeles"" Times Book Review"

Praise for "As Consciousness is Harnessed to Flesh"

"Sontag's essays are arch, intransigent--so it is a rare pleasure to read, in her diary, discoveries being made in real time. She applies her mind to itself with enthusiasm . . . The overall portrait gained from these journals seems to be of an impossibly fractured author--but the diaries also remind us that Sontag the writer and Sontag the woman, inevitably, occupy the same territory, so that even when she is writing about culture, she is, in a sense, exploring herself . . [a] difficult, fascinating volume . . . As her diaries reveal with such intensity, she harnessed only a fraction of her mind to produce the writing we have seen until now; the rest is consciousness." --Emily Stokes, "The Guardian"

"In the three years since "Reborn", the first volume of Susan Sontag's journals and notebooks, was published, at least three more books about the literary titan have appeared . . . [but] nothing compares with going to the source directly. The second of three volumes, "As Consciousness Is Harnessed to Flesh", spans the years of Sontag's most prodigious output and her greatest intellectual influence, including the 1966 publication of her first volume of essays, the landmark "Against Interpretation", and the equally influential "Illness as Metaphor", a 1978 treatise inspired by her first bout with breast cancer." --Melissa Anderson, "Newsday"

"A powerful self-portrait gradually emerges. Sontag avoided personal writing, as Rieff explains; perhaps, he suggests, the diaries constitute 'the great autobiographical novel she never cared to write' . . . the reader warms more to her through her sudden lists of appealing adjectives ('besotted, cerulean, ogival') o

"These journals present the opportunity to delve deeply into the soul of Susan Sontag....Magnificent."--Nancy D. Kates, "San Francisco Chronicle"

"If "Reborn" is Sontag's precocious coming-to, this sequel finds her there, a somebody....She fills her journals with flinty thoughts....It's impossible to read these journals and not experience the warmer side of her ambition: her deep admiration for certain artists around her, her animating wish to encourage and promote."--Emily Greenhouse, "The New Yorker"

"A little like her criticism, her diary entries combine her interests with bright, aphoristic turns of phrase....These diaries are a reminder of the value of the work that made her great, and also mysterious---partly (and forever)---escaping from view."--"The Economist
