difficult, unique

by William on Jan 23, 2014

Paglia has written a difficult book showcasing a unique view of the history, and psychology, of art. She describes her method as a kind of sensationalism, and moves quickly between centuries and genres. Whether or not you buy her overarching analysis, you will find her readings of poetry, and her insights into the artists she examines, rewarding.

instructive

by selcukeryatmaz on Jan 24, 2008

Paglia, in her skillfully crafted book, explores society and individual in terms of sex, gender and identity. Elegant yet understandable language makes Sexual Personae a must for anyone who approve dynamics of western culture.
