the secondary literature

Literary critics of elevated sensibility, textual empathy, and informed imagination are hard to come by. The rare ones bond themselves almost spiritually to the finest literature. They write with such intelligent flair that their essays are like a homecoming. They understand how you understand. They give eloquent voice to your own deep wordless appreciation. Such a one was Susan Sontag.

1933 - 2004
