THE BELATED SENSUALITY AND NEW SENSIBILITY (ABOUT SUSAN SONTAG’S AGAINST INTERPRETATION AND OTHER ESSAYS) The article discusses early essayistic writing of Susan Sontag, mainly the well-known and influential essays Against interpretation, On style, Notes on ‘Camp’, and One culture and new sensibility. The author looks at the evolution of Sontag’s aesthetic assumptions, especially at the way her initial praise of Modernism developed into categories of Post-modernism. Interestingly, all the time Sontag’s thought went along the lines of avant-garde thinking. The author also looks at the way Sontag’s aesthetic assumptions translated into her literary criticism on the basis of her essays and reviews about the French culture of 1950s and 1960s.
