"In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could to any person; I create myself."


The first of three volumes of Susan Sontag's journals and notebooks, Reborn (1947-1963) reveals one of the most important thinkers and writers of the twentieth century, fully engaged in the act of self-invention.

About the Author:

SUSAN SONTAG immediately became a major figure of our culture with the publication in 1966 of the pathbreaking collection of essays Against Interpretation. She went on to write four novels, including the National Book Award-winning In America, as well as a collection of stories, several plays, and seven works of nonfiction. She died in New York City on December 28, 2004.

REBORN
1947 11/23/47  
I believe: (a)That there is no personal god or life after death (b)That the most desirable thing in the world is freedom to be true to oneself, i.e., Honesty (c)That the only difference between human beings is intelligence (d)That the only criterion of an action is its ultimate effect on making the individual happy or unhappy (e)That it is wrong to deprive any man of life [ Entries "f" and "g" are missing.] (h)I believe, furthermore, that an ideal state (besides "g") should be a strong centralized one with government control of public utilities, banks, mines, + transportation and subsidy of the arts, a comfortable minimum wage, support of disabled and age[d]. State care of pregnant women with no distinction such as legitimate + illegitimate children. Preface copyright © 2008 by David Rieff
