Studio 360: Sontag, Hemon, War

Sontag, Hemon, War
Studio 360 (WNYC)
Host: Kurt Anderson

How artists help us to make sense of war. ... Kurt Andersen revisits his conversation with the late writer Susan Sontag. Recorded a month before the war in Iraq began and only a year before her death, Sontag looks at how we interpret images of war, and tells us how she staged theater in the war zone. Also, novelists who escaped war find meaning in poetry, and two film critics look at how American filmmakers have fought and refought the Viet Nam war on-screen.
