Sontag & Kael book book was much better than I thought it would be. It is quite emotional at times. In the end it turns into a contemplation of the art of criticism as he runs down his thoughts on Sontag and Kael. He analyzes their methods and provides keen insights.
Í am still not convinced that Kael was Sontag's equal as a critic. Good book. Very fun /5(10). From the very beginning Seligman makes his sympathies clear: Sontag is a writer he reveres; but Kael is a writer he approaches both critics through their work, whose fundamental parallels serve to sharpen their differences/5(10).
In this book, there are a lot of brilliant ideas about Susan Sontag and Kael, but the way this book was narrated is a little bit disturbing. The author is a New Yorker column reviewer, reviewing food and wine section and books and so on.4/5(15).
This book should be taught (and read!) as a model text of what criticism can be witty, humane, passionately engaged and always rational and ultimately balanced. Certainly biased at times toward Kael and against Sontag (which even Seligman acknowledges in the text) but that is a critic's perogative - /5(10).
Not a dry ponderous "think piece," but a lively, highly readable examination of the work of both Susan Sontag and Pauline Kael, this walloping literary dust-up sizes up two writers who couldn't be more different in their style and : Counterpoint Press.
Seligman was Kael's friend for the last 23 years of her life; he doesn't even want to meet Sontag. He may conclude, reluctantly, that “Sontag often seems to me the greater writer,” but few readers will believe it when comparing the zest with which he conveys the idiosyncratic particulars of Kael's passion for movies with the irritable.
Seligman not only realizes that Sontag and Kael are very different kinds of writers, but his book also implies that a proper critical consciousness ought to encompass—even if it cannot. "Sontag & Kael" takes the form of a thrillingly extended compare-and- contrast essay about these two women's work and lives.
From Seligman's sly. Yet Craig Seligman’s “Sontag & Kael: Opposites Attract Me,” is just that. Branching out from an encyclopedic knowledge of both Susan Sontag’s and Pauline Kael’s work, the Author: Allison Burnett.
