Reader's Notes - Regarding the Pain of Others (Susan Sontag)

For now - reader's notes (mainly, things/people/ideas/images/etc that I want to look up). Also added a post reflecting on the book.

  • Yosuke Yamahata - man who saw both Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombed
  • Titian's "Flaying of Marsyas"
  • Goya's works on war and suffering... soldiers run amok. (update: a set of images like this is really cool to view through the space-time browser)
  • or dostoyevsky
  • Tennyson's "The Charge of the Light Brigade" - refers to the Crimean War
  • Baudelaire's journals
  • Turgenev on the execution of Troppman
  • Hara's "The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On" (update - damn. watched this via netflix.)
  • Jeff Wall's "Dead Troops Talk"
