Annotation

In these two texts, Sontag shows how the metaphors surrounding certain illnesses, especially cancer, add greatly to the suffering of the patients and often inhibit them from seeking proper treatment. Examples of metaphor are taken from medical and psychiatric thinking, as well as literary sources.
