Has anyone else read this fascinating essay? If so, I'd love to get a discussion going about it. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it.
I'm trying to reach out to anyone who wants to have an intellectual discourse on literary concepts or ideas here on Hubpages with this discussion. I miss having the opportunity to discuss critical texts with other learned academics. I've not found a successful forum for this discussion online because, and the jury is still out on this, it seems non face-to-face group discussion can easily devolve into drivel, ego, and prejudice.
So, to like-minded writers and critics, what are your thoughts on Sontag's essay? It really opened my eyes to other ways of thinking about writing, but I don't want to get into that yet.
Eagerly awaiting replies,
