Sinopsis: The fantasies concocted around cancer and around tuberculosis in earlier times undergo close examination in Susan Sontag's brilliant book. Her subject is the unreal and often punitive uses of illness as a figure or metaphor in our culture. Her point is that illness is not a metaphor, and that the most truthful way of regarding illness - and the healthiest way of being ill - is to resist such metaphoric thinking.
