    1. “A writer, I think, is someone who pays attention to the world." image: [image error]Como mi segundo libro en este reto literario del 2017, que tiene como finalidad conocer a escritoras alrededor del mundo, opte por Susan Sontag de Estados Unidos. Novelista, fotógrafa, directora de cine, activista de varios movimientos políticos y sociales, así también como defensora de los derechos humanos y la libertad de expresión, Sontag fue nacida en Nueva York en 1933 y fue egresada de universidades [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this book.I think the best part is the first section. I particularly liked the essays about Victor Serge and Anna Banti. The section on 9/11 and its aftermath was also powerful.I found the speeches uneven but definitely worthwhile.If truth is light I think this book should glow in the dark.

    3. Her use of language was masterful - the kind that just makes on want to recite it out loud to hear the words roll off ones tongue. The works in this collection were Sontag at her best - impeccably thought out and admirably executed!

    4. At the Same Time gathers sixteen essays & speeches by Susan Sontag, including: "An Argument About Beauty", "1926Pasternak, Tsvetayeva, Rilke", "Loving Dostoyevsky", "A Double Destiny: On Anna Banti's Artemisia", "Unextinguished: The Case for Victor Serge", "9.11.01", "A Few Weeks After", "One Year After", "Photography: A Little Summa", "Regarding the Torture of Others", "The Conscience of Words", "The World as India", "On Courage and Resistance", "Literature Is Freedom", "At the Same Time: T [...]

    5. "Time exists in order that it doesn't happen all at once exists so that it doesn't all happen to you" (226). The essay "At the Same Time" has been an aid in understanding my ability/inability to process the latest horrors in the holy land. Arguing for literature's value, Sontag writes, "Hearing the shattering news of the great earthquake that leveled Lisbon [in 1755], and (if historians are to be believed) took with it a whole society's optimism (but obviously I don't believe that any society ha [...]

    6. I began with her last. As a whole, as a book, I'm not really sure how successful it is. I suppose the thing it lacks is cohesion - though this is to be somewhat expected in a book composed of a number of essays and speeches on a number of diverging topics. Though the issues explored remain as relevant as always, in the 10 years+ that have passed since being written, her approach at times teeters on becoming dated. Yet again, this is probably not a fair criticism, since death has denied Sontag th [...]

    7. It has been a lot time since I've read such a well written book. If you really love reading and you care a lot about form, structure and the use of argumentation in essays this is definately a must read. It has definitely pushed my ideas beyond my current comfortable state of mind.

    8. While not her best, it is alas, the last. It was helpful also to read the foreword to better understand the context of these essays and how truly heart breaking to read the lament that she wishes she had more time to write about what burned deep inside her.Many, many wonderful "big ideas" broken down into tiny bits:1. There is no final photograph.2. Literature was freedom. Especially in a time in which the values of reading and inwardness are so strenuously challenged. 3. The likelihood that you [...]

    9. Madame Sontag es brillante, es aguda, es seria (asunto este último que podría pasar por defecto, si la empresa de su vida no hubiera sido tan grande). En estos ensayos se dedica a plantarnos ideíllas en pos de la libertad, sobre todo, además de las funciones, derechos y la ética de los escritores, la traducción, y la literatura misma. Nos habla de la modernidad (que ha de leerse como posmodernidad), de la fotografía, de los viajes, de la tortura. Pero Al mismo tiempo -como Sontag misma- n [...]

    10. Sontag was a seriously smart woman. In these pieces she riffs wisely on beauty, politics, literature's role, photography and modernity. She wasn't a gritty writer; she was an elite thinker who adored life expressed through "high" culture. But she wasn't scared to look evil and pain in the face and to confront it in a bold tone.As a writer, I don't strive to emulate Sontag; her ideas aren't articulated as accessibly as they deserve to be. But I learn a lot from her nonetheless. Her writing leaves [...]

    11. Este libro contiene tanta sabiduría, lucidez, alma que no creo haber captado absolutamente todo en 1 sola leída. Este es un manual definitivo para ser no solo mejores escritores, sino también para ser un mejor ciudadano, crítico, moral, compasivo. Solo me queda decir, ¡qué gran mujer la Sontag, qué gran mente, qué ser humano!

    12. I'm embarrassed by and sorry for parts of what I initially wrote -- left unedited, below -- about At the Same Time. Mainly, I'm sorry for having insinuated that Susan Sontag was intentionally terse or worse unintentionally terse, and I'm especially sorry for having implied that such a criticism was my, and presumably should be your, main take away from her writing, specifically in the noted collection of essays. What a dumb thing to say on my part. My bad.What I did say that I think remains corr [...]

    13. A brilliant 4.5 stars!I don't really remember how I heard about Susan Sontag except it was in one of my bookish whatsapp groups (umm yeah, they exist, I am a part of two). And I tucked it away in the back of my mind. On my visit to the library a couple of months back, I stumbled upon 'In America' by her but the title didn't interest me much. What did I have to do with America anyhow? And I put it back on the shelf.And then I came across this book by Sontag on my recent library visit. I contempla [...]

    14. Esta compilación es contundente desde el prólogo, escrito por el hijo de Sontag. Abarca temas políticos, literarios, universales y personales. Expone a través de una serie de ensayos y conferencias los pensamientos de una de las intelectuales más brillantes de la historia reciente, al menos en mi opinión. Mis favoritos fueron el ensayo sobre la belleza y aquellos breves dedicados al ataque terrorista del 11 de septiembre, así como el que dedica a las fotos de Abu Ghraib. Susan tiene una m [...]

    15. Remarkable writing from a deep thinker who is also a wise and brilliant writer. Not always an easy read, but most of the chapters were quite rewarding. She provides a fresh and fascinating take on many topics; beauty, torture, English (The World as India), 9/11, often pulling in observations from the most disparate sources! After reading the fascinating chapter about Victor Serge (and his life in the Stalinist era) I ordered his book - I never would have known of it otherwise. I thought the last [...]

    17. Cuando compré este libro lo único que conocía de Susan Sontag era su nombre y reputación. Al principio sentí que confirmaba algunos prejuicios sobre el intelectual infumable (o mejor dicho, el que indirectamente quiere mostrar cuánto sabe) y lo abandoné un buen tiempo. Mi opinión cambió radicalmente al tomarlo de nuevo.Una colección de ensayos, artículos, conferencias y discursos, “Al mismo tiempo” es -me juego una carta, porque no tengo más antecedentes- el mejor boleto para ent [...]

    18. Like all of Sontag's work, "At the Same Time" has its pros and cons: It's more accessible than some of her other essays and reviews, but it's not nearly as powerful or universal as "Regarding the Pain of Others." The reviews were particularly interesting, because Sontag seemed drawn to obscure authors, giving her a chance to unravel their biographical yarns. The 9/11 essays were typically bitter, much like John Berger's sentiments from the same period (and should it be surprising? Two Leftist ae [...]

    19. Susan Sontag was one of the most insightful and intelligent essayists of the last century. Her death is a tremendous loss to American Arts and Letters. At the Same Time is a collection of postumously published essays and speeches from the last few years. The collection reads like much of her work: articulate, precise, and always intellectually and morally "serious." I particularly liked her essay on Dostoyevsky and on translation, her clarity and depth of thought are truly reminiscent of Walter [...]

    20. Je zou kunnen zeggen dat Susan Sontag voor een breed publiek schrijft - de essays in deze bundel (veelal dankspeeches en lezingen) zijn zeer toegankelijk; vlot en direct geschreven in een eenvoudige taal. Maar die eenvoud blijkt vaak niet enkel in de taal gekropen. De gedachtegang en bijhorende argumentering zijn zeer goed te volgen (ook voor wie zichzelf tot leek bestempelt in het besproken onderwerp), maar worden soms een beetje vervelend (saai zelfs) - wanneer Sontag schrijvers portretteert b [...]

    21. Kind of average compared to her other works, so much so it's probably my least favourite collection of essays of hers. She still posses her trademark argumentative flair with a fist strong hold on economy, it's just that I don't think the topics are as worthy of discussion. The essay on Dostoyevsky is basically a brief bio on completely different author, and while her post 9/11 essays are damning, they are also somewhat repetitive. Most of the back end of the book are speeches, which I found a l [...]

    22. I didn't finish the whole book before I had to return it to the library.I read her fantastic essay, An Argument About Beauty, which I will not forget because I loved it; 1926Pasternak, Tsvetayeva, Rilke; Loving Dostoyevsky (about Leonid Tsypkin's Summer in Baden Baden); Unextinguished: the Case for Victor Serge; and A Double Destiny: On Anna Banti's Artemesia. (All waiting on my shelves to be read.)I skimmed the Laxness essay and the rest, which doesn't count as reading. I felt a failing desire [...]

    23. Loved it! Especially enjoyed the part when she talks about Russian literature, Dostoyevsky and one of my fave poet, Rilke. Definitely worth for a reread. From the part "The World as India": A writer is first of all a reader. It is from reading that I derive the standards by which I measure my own work and according to which I fall lamentably short. It is from reading, even before writing, tha I became part of a community - the community of literature.

    24. These essays are some of my favorite this year. Sontag's voice is more a glimpse into her mind and the thoughts that have gathered together to make sense of a dramatically changing word. The world or literature, political policy, culture, and communication. Her vision is clear, thoughtful, and neither black nor white. Each of these essays make an argument that is fluid and open for change and interpretation. I will come back to this collection many times.

    25. This is the last collection of essays by Sontag, the\work she was comopiling before she died. I am going to copy her essays on 9-11 and its aftermath, plus one on photography that describes our current way of seeing in fragments with previous mankinds way of seeing the whole picture. I couldn't give her five stars because the essays about writers and works I don't know are slow reading, for me.

    26. Another great dollar tree find! :-) "A writer is first of all a reader. It is from reading that I derive the standards by which I measure my own work and according to which I fall lamentably short. It is from reading, even before writing, that I became part of a community -- the community of literature -- which includs more dead than living writers." ~ Susan Sontag

    27. I am a big Sontag fan so when this came out I had to get it. It's a collection of speeches and essays and they are not grouped thematically, so the collection is a bit disjointed at times. But if you love Sontag, you should read it. She was such an important person.

    28. A better example of posthumously published essays, Sontag wanted these ones collected. Sontag writes where her interests take her, but she takes the reader with her. It's a skill, and it served her well.

    33. I've always liked Sontag from her remarkable "Against Interpretation" essays, and this book didn't disappoint. She contemplates 9/11 in a series of essays -- the day of, a few weeks after, a year after. Also, she includes a thrilling essay on the relationship between America and Europe.

    34. who doesn't find sontag interesting. i read a few of these essays, and would like to read more. i'm looking forward to reading more. i prefer her less academic explorations, and enjoy her more 'overview' type pieces which incorporate her lightning sharp intelligence and vast worldly knowledge.

    35. A good variety of articles that compose Sunsan Sontag's last "book" (when she died, only a summary of the texts she would use to compose the book was left). As a deep writer, I enjoyed much more reading her literature evaluations than her others texts in this collection.

    37. Although this is a fairly uneven mix of Sontag's most recent work, her biting, on-the-mark insights about American politics and culture are definitely worth reading.
