In the LA Times (registration may be required), Michael Soller contrasts and compares the farewells to Sontag and Derrida, and unearths two poetical tributes:

• Susan Sontag — quicksilver darting between past and future to shed light on the otherwise dark present — and your conscience that traveled almost at the speed of light.
(John Berger, The Observer)

• You wanna knowda creeda Derrida?/Dere ain't no reader./(Dere ain't no wrider Eider.) (Adrian Salter, letter to the Spectator)
