Abstract:

She is insulted at being called "the most intelligent woman in America" because it implies that the category of intelligent women is substantially smaller than that of men. Should she feel honored to be considered an outstanding member of a spurned caste? In this program, Susan Sontag, discoverer of camp and diagnostician of the intellectual and artistic ills of late-20th-century America, tells us of the difficulties of being a woman, a writer, and a sentient human being in this place and at this time-in the process describing her view of herself and the standards she has set for herself.
