Øyvind Vågnes

University Press of Mississippi

ØyvindVågnes’s essay is the first in the book to focus on Sacco’s story “The Unwanted,” and Vâgnes demonstrates how one of Sacco’s central devices--the portrait of an interview subject--functions as a means to represent the harms of “bare life” and to imagine an ethics of hospitality.
