Denna månad är det 10 år sedan Susan Sontag gick bort och ikväll visas HBO-dokumentären Regarding Susan Sontag. Alison Nastasi och hennes kollegor på Flavorwire har påpassligt sammanställt en fantastisk lista med citat av Susan Sontag, om allt från relationer och kärlek till konst, litteratur och skrivande:

”My idea of a writer: someone interested in everything.”

”Literature is dialogue; responsiveness. Literature might be described as the history of human responsiveness to what is alive and what is moribund as cultures evolve and interact with one another.”



”To me, literature is a calling, even a kind of salvation. It connects me with an enterprise that is over 2,000 years old. What do we have from the past? Art and thought. That’s what lasts. That’s what continues to feed people and give them an idea of something better. A better state of one’s feelings or simply the idea of a silence in one’s self that allows one to think or to feel. Which to me is the same.”

”The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art — and, by analogy, our own experience — more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.”

”All aesthetic judgment is really cultural evaluation.”

Läs hela listan, men stanna gärna på Flavorwire, de är specialister på listor, ofta väldigt långa och välgjorda, om böcker, konst, design, musik, teve och film. De har gjort flera årsbästalistor, och fler lär vara på väg.
