Después de Contra l. a. interpretación (1968) y Estilos radicales (1969), en Bajo el signo de Saturno (1980) se encuentran reunidos una serie de ensayos ­magníficos los dedicados a Antonin Artaud y a Leni Riefensthal­ cuyo hilo conductor es los angeles discusión sobre las frágiles relaciones entre ethical y estética. Defensora de l. a. independencia del arte respecto a las rules de sus creadores ­«una obra de arte es una cosa en el mundo, no un texto o comentario sobre el mundo»­, en esta ocasión Susan Sontag habla sobre algunos de los artistas y pensadores más influyentes de nuestra period. «Esteta enamorada y moralista obsesiva, tal y como se describía a sí misma, Sontag, más que muchos otros escritores de su generación, consideraba l. a. tarea cotidiana de pensar y sentir como aspectos dialéticos mutuos. Al depurar esa sensibilidad mientras se ocupaba de los temas más controvertidos de su época, Sontag ha creado un corpus de un mérito ejemplar.» The Boston Globe

I also situate this transformation within the larger trajectory of Baudelaire’s inquiry into the aesthetic, and, in this context, the “reversal of visual power in the exhibition of foreign merchandise” (123) represents a new stage in Baudelaire’s theorization of the ideal of imaginative receptivity for the cosmopolitan critic rather than the experience of the common viewer (see Sanyal 120–3). Ascribing a positive value to the bizarre or strange is not unique to Baudelaire, of course. For instance, Charles Perrier in his coverage of the 1855 Exposition writes in defense of exaggeration in Delacroix’s art, “in terms of art, the strange (l’étrange) is often more perfect than the perfect” (75).
