Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Regarding the Pain of Others is Susan Sontag's searing analysis of our numbed response to images of horror. From Goya's Disasters of War to news footage and photographs of the conflicts in Vietnam, Rwanda and Bosnia, pictures have been charged with inspiring dissent, fostering violence or instilling apathy in us, the viewer. Regarding the Pain of Others will alter our thinking not only about the uses and meanings of images, but about the nature of war, the limits of sympathy, and the obligations of conscience.'Powerful, fascinating. Sontag is our outstanding contemporary writer in the moralist tradition' Sunday Times'A coruscating sermon on how we picture suffering' The New York Times'A far-reaching set of ruminations on human suffering, the nature of goodness, the lures, deceptions and truth of images . . . in short, a summary of what it means to be alive and alert in the twentieth century' Independent'Sontag is on top form: firing devastating questions' Los Angeles Times'Simple, elegant, fiercely persuasive' MetroOne of America's best-known and most admired writers, Susan Sontag was also a leading commentator on contemporary culture until her death in December 2004. Her books include four novels and numerous works of non-fiction, among them Regarding the Pain of Others, On Photography, Illness as Metaphor, At the Same Time, Against Interpretation and Other Essays and Reborn: Early Diaries 1947-1963, all of which are published by Penguin. A further eight books, including the collections of essays Under the Sign of Saturn and Where the Stress Falls, and the novels The Volcano Lover and The Benefactor, are available from Penguin Modern Classics. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

This is a short but thought-provoking contemplation on how we as viewers respond to photos/artwork that displays suffering, and what the motivations of the creators of such objects might be, both conscious and latent. This is the first work by Sontag I've read, though it probably won't be my last. Her writing is concise, clear, and sometimes masterly. She brings Joyce Carol Oates to mind, or at least their nonfiction works have a similar, probing style (and here I'm thinking of Oates' "On Boxing").

This book focused primarily on photos/artwork related to war, which makes its scope perhaps smaller than I would have desired in a work with a title that sounds so sweeping. Therein lies my only quibble with a book that I would have otherwise awarded five stars. There is mention of everything from the Crimean War to Kosovo, but smaller incidents like the photos of the mass suicides of the Baader-Meinhof Group, for instance, receive no attention. Sontag is intelligent (that's an understatement) so I can't for the life of me figure out why she excludes non-war related images from the category of her titular "Pain" (the exception being lynchings in Jim Crow South).

That, as previously mentioned, is a minor quibble with an otherwise flawless study. It bears mentioning that the work is shorter than I would have preferred it to be, if only because Sontag's lucid prose is a joy to read. She mentions another work of hers dealing with essays on photography at some point in the course of "Pain." I think I will have to seek that book out. Hopefully it's a little longer. In any case, recommended...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great work on the power and deceipt of images 13 novembre 2009
Par H. T. M. Bruin - Publié sur Amazon.com

Susan Sontag is known as a lover as well as a critique of photography. In Regarding the Pain of Others she focuses on the impact of horrible war-images - starting with paintings such as Goya's Disasters of the War (1810-1820) going up to the present, in which first photography and then film have taken over. She rightly and strongly criticises the old idea that 'pictures show the truth', and horrible pictures 'the truth of war', an idea especially popular in the Interwar Years (Ernst Friedrich, Virginia Woolf), but certainly anything but dead after 1945. Pictures have frames so they are framed (even when they are not staged or manipulated) and therefore can not show the truth in all its nuance, in all its effects. And besides: the photographer can have his or her intentions when painting or shooting the image, but that is not to say that this intention is indeed the consequence publication will have. A book that makes you think, and that is always a compliment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful. 29 octobre 2016
Par Ben - Publié sur Amazon.com

I had never heard of Susan Sontag prior to my Survey of Photography class. We read the first chapter of "On Photography", it was good. I went ahead and bought the book myself. Later in the semester we read a short bit on "Regarding the Pain of Others", it was even better. All I can say is based on those 2, especially this one, Susan Sontag is amazing. I don't agree with everything she says, but I can't recall an instance that I felt she was misguided or confused. Her thoughts and ideas are well founded and presented. I've since learned of her reputation, and must say she earned it. It's a shame she didn't have more time to write, though there are many other pieces I've yet to read. The best thing I can say is that reading her allows for, in my experience, the chance to almost have a discussion with her. It's written in such a way that it isn't spoon fed to the reader. That's not to say it's a hard read, but it's open enough that your own thoughts can blend with hers.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Helpful Appoach to Visual Rhetoric 1 octobre 2013
Par Jessica S. Manuel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I taught the fourth essay in this book to my students last week to launch our visual rhetoric unit. The pictures Sontag describes are all available online through Google images and are helpful in understanding her arguments. Sontag is primarily dealing with still images, and although some mention of cinema is explored, a conversation on cinema would be more appropriate when reading through her other essays.

Much of her argument in this text feels lifted from Jean Baudrillard's discussion of hyperreality. Although she does mention him, as well as Guy Debord's "Society of the Spectacle" once later in this collection of essays, it feels inadequate. Much of what she discusses could be read as theoretical applications of these thinkers, therefore her argument is not uniquely her own. The application she proposes, however, is worth reading the book.

Finally, the fourth essay is included in many composition readers, but it is definitely necessary that the teacher understands the arguments she puts forth earlier in this book because the fourth essay is building on previous chapters. The students will walk away understanding her message, however, an explanation of the previous arguments would enhance their comprehension.
