Break, Blow, Burn by Camille Paglia

Book Description

America s most provocative intellectual brings her blazing powers of analysis to the most famous poems of the Western tradition and unearths some previously obscure verses worthy of a place in our canon. Combining close reading with a panoramic breadth of learning, Camille Paglia sharpens our understanding of poems we thought we knew, from Shakespeare to Dickinson to Plath, and makes a case for including in the canon works by Paul Blackburn, Wanda Coleman, Chuck Wachtel, Rochelle Kraut and even Joni Mitchell. Daring, riveting, and beautifully written, Break, Blow, Burn is a modern classic that excites even seasoned poetry lovers and continues to create generations of new ones. "

Are Men Obsolete? by Camille Paglia Are Men Obsolete?, Hardback (May 2014)

Do women get anything from men being obsolete? Do we win by triumphing in work, education, the economy, politics and business, while retaining homemaking and child rearing? If that happened then we will be doing everything! In this book, the authors debate whether modern man is past his sell-by-date, and, if so, what does that mean for women?

Tom of Finland XXL by Camille Paglia Tom of Finland XXL, Hardback (February 2009)

In 1998, Taschen introduced the world to the masterful art of Touko Laaksonen with "The Art of Pleasure". This title showcases the range of Tom's talent, from sensitive portraits to frank sexual pleasure to tender expressions of love to his haunting tributes to young men struck down by the AIDS epidemic.
