Break, Blow, Burn by Camille Paglia

Book Description

America s most provocative intellectual brings her blazing powers of analysis and appreciation to bear on the great poems of the Western tradition, and on some unexpected discoveries of her own. Combining close reading with a panoramic breadth of learning, Camille Paglia refreshes our understanding of poems we "thought "we knew, from Shakespeare s Sonnet 73 to Shelley s Ozymandias, from Donne s The Flea to Lowell s Man and Wife, and from Dickinson s Because I Could Not Stop for Death to Plath s Daddy. Paglia also introduces us to less-familiar works by Paul Blackburn, Wanda Coleman, Chuck Wachtel, Rochelle Kraut and even Joni Mitchell. Daring, riveting, and beautifully written, "Break, Blow, Burn" will excite even seasoned poetry lovers, and create a generation of new ones.Includes a new epilogue that details the selection process for choosing the 43 poems presented in this book and provides commentary on some of the pieces that didn't make the final cut."

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.
