AIDS AND ITS METAPHORS

Sontag, Susan

New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1989. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1989. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 95 pages. The author's book-length essay on subject. The sequel to the author's classic, "Illness As Metaphor". The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Susan Sontag's scathing, extended critical essay on the invented and punitive uses of AIDS as a metaphor in Western culture and a thoughtful reappraisal of the Gay Liberation Movement's remarkable successes and inevitable failures at the same time. Widely praised, debated, and criticized at the same time, it is to Susan Sontag's credit that she stood by her controversial positions and refused to be bowed by the surprisingly indignant criticism the book received, especially from the American gay community. Sontag wrote "Illness As Metaphor" in response to what would be the first of her three successive bouts with cancer. While its tone is coolly intellectual, every word is underlined by her illness and is one of her most autobiographical works. "AIDS And Its Metaphors" was also necessary writing. She lost many friends and colleagues to AIDS, and the book is dedicated to one of them, the artist Paul Thek, to whom Sontag also dedicated her debut collection of essays and masterpiece, "Against Interpretation". "You have to know when to let the old life go, and go on and not look back and have regrets. Otherwise you will always be sad, because you are always losing something. That's the way life is if you let misfortunes strike you too hard, you won't see the new chance coming" (Susan Sontag) . An absolute "must-have" title for Susan Sontag collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the front free endpaper by Susan Sontag. This title is a modern classic. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant, the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1977 for "On Photography", the National Book Award in 2000 for "In America", and the Jerusalem Prize in 2001. Shimon Peres, in awarding the Jerusalem Prize, described Sontag as "one of the world's finest writers and greatest minds". One of the most influential and important American writer-intellectuals of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SUSAN SONTAG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374102570.
