America's premier intellectual provocateur explores and celebrates a series of great poems of the Western tradition, including some surprising discoveries of her own. She brings new energy and insight to our understanding of poems we already know, such as masterpieces by Shakespeare, Donne, Shelley, Dickinson, Lowell, and Plath. She leads us to appreciate the artistry of writers with whom we may not be familiar, such as Chuck Wachtel and Wanda Coleman. And she hails the songwriter Joni Mitchell as a major contemporary poet. Daring, erudite, entertaining, and infused throughout with Paglia's inimitable style and passion, this book--and the dazzling mind behind it--will entice readers to begin or renew a passionate engagement with poetry

The Birds by Camille Paglia( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Birds (1963) was the first film Alfred Hitchcock made after Psycho. Drawn from a Daphne Du Maurier story as well as contemporary newspaper reports of bird attacks in California, The Birds featured the icy blonde Tippi Hedren in her first starring role. A film about anxiety, sexual power, and the violence of nature, it is quintessential Hitchcock. Camille Paglia, in a virtuoso study, draws together the film's aesthetic, technical and mythical qualities, and analyzes its depiction of gender and family relations.--From publisher description
David Bowie is the subject by David Bowie( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Bowie is a pioneering artist and performer whose career has spanned nearly 50 years and brought him international acclaim. He has sold over 140 million albums, and been cited as a major influence on contemporary artists and designers working across the creative arts. This is the first book to be granted access to Bowie's personal archive of performance costume, ephemera and original design artwork by Bowie, and brings it together to present a completely new perspective on his creative work and collaborations. The book traces his career from its beginnings in London, through the breakthroughs of Space Oddity and Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and on to his impact on the larger international tradition of twentieth-century avant-garde art. Essays by V & A curators on Bowie's London, image and influence on the fashion world are complemented by Christopher Frayling on film; Howard Goodall on musicology; Camille Paglia on gender and decadence; and Jon Savage on Bowie's relationship with William Burroughs and his fans."--Publisher's description
Pride divide( Visual )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the producers of the award-winning Last Call at Maud's, comes this ground breaking exploration of the gender gap between gays and lesbians. Politically united against global homophobia, they are poles apart on many life issues. Oddly enough, their struggle of male versus female mirrors many traditional conflicts inherent to straight relationships. The gay and lesbian community is not immune to gender conditioning. Here is the classic battle of the sexes from a totally new perspective, leavened with humor. The film looks at the issues around male domination versus female submission; promiscuousness versus commitment; exaltation of the body versus the spirit; AIDS versus breast cancer support. We hear about the subtle chauvinism by gay activists who excluded lesbians from their political and social life, especially in the conformist 1950s. Now, however, both sides seem willing to discuss these differences openly. Individuals involved in this dialogue include Martin Duberman, Barney Frank, Barbara Gittings, Simon LeVay, Camille Paglia and others. This lively film is sure to rouse discussion.

Are men obsolete? : Rosin and Dowd vs. Moran and Paglia : the Munk debate on gender by Maureen Dowd( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time in history, will it be better to be a woman than a man in the upcoming century? The twelfth semi-annual Munk Debate pits renowned author and editorHanna Rosin and Pulitzer Prizewinning columnist Maureen Dowd against New York Timesbestselling author Caitlin Moran and academic trailblazer Camille Paglia to debate one of the biggest socio-economic phenomena of our time the relative decline of the power and status of men in the workplace, in the family, and society at large. Men have traditionally been the dominant sex. But now, for the first time, a host of indicators suggests that women not only are achieving equality with men, but are fast emerging as the more successful sex of the species. Whether in education, employment, personal health, or child rearing, statistics point to a rise in the status and power of women at home, in the workplace, and in traditional male bastions such as politics. But are men, and the age-old power structures associated with maleness, permanently in decline? With women increasingly demonstrating their ability to have it all while men lag behind, the Munk Debate on gender tackles the essential socio-economic question: Are men obsolete?

How will both parties re-imagine America's role in the world in the aftermath of the botched occupation of Iraq? And what are the implications for Canada of a Democratic or Republican victory?" "This book offers a written record of the talks that Camille Paglia, Shelby Steele, James Carville, and David Gergen gave, complete with the spirited, probing question and answer periods that followed."--Jacket
