Just when I think I can't take any more, just when I think I've had enough of la Paglia and her outrageous ranting, I pick up this collection of essays and all doubt melts away. I know she's easy to get tired of; I know a lot of you out there think she's overstayed her welcome, but the fact of the matter is that Camille Paglia's scholarship and intellect cannot be doubted (unless they can). The essays here are softer, more personal, less harsh on the brain: one of my favorites is of the portrait of the Italian saint which once hung in her grandmother's house; having had an Italian grandmother with portraits which served as a reminder of death all around the house, I understand completely. Another essay which is brilliant in its prickly specificity is the one in which she shares about her "Brothers in Crime": four gay men who have influenced the way she sees and reads and reports. Among them is the much under-appreciated Bruce Benderson, whose own insights into the cultural scene are always right on the mark. In that light, it is interesting now to see how much, in the early 90s, our own Dr. Paglia adored Bill and Hillary, and to hear now the acerbic statements she makes about them both. I would urge anyone, however, to read bell hooks's scathing essay on Paglia (in Outlaw Culture) to get the other side. Paglia wins hooks's own award for the most talked-about but least read academic book of the year (Sexual Personae, in 1990, available from amazon.com). I've used this collection of essays in the classroom once before, but it caused so much controversy, I've never returned to using it (the words for today, children, are un-tenured and adjunct). The essays on Diana and Jackie-Oh, and the Brooklyn Nefertiti, Barbara (why does she keep on singing?Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Camille Paglia is a feminist in defense of men. She calls herself an "equity feminist." In all of her works she never reflects on many of the major global issues that called feminism to duty in the first place. She is someone who attempts to place boundaries on the current state of feminism without understanding that she is also overconfidently destroying the cries of warning made to the human race by intelligent men and women who see the destruction caused by straight men in power. "Vamps and Tramps" is her "playground" version of "Sexual Personae." It is this book as well as "Sex, Art, and American Culture" where she basically applies her historical analyses to current society. Unfortunatley, her view of history is limited to that of successful conquest and emits evidence of amnesia for many of the repeated atrocities(Yes, Camille, call me an "atrocity addict" if you want to) and disasters which also show signs of happening again in current times. For example....her view for gay men who protested in organizations such as ACT UP is easily refutable. All of her Catholic premises that she tries to use to dismantle gay men does not mask the fact that not once does she ever comment about the use of the PINK TRIANGLE as a symbol! She recently commented upon the "amorality" of gay men due to their sexual behavior. But in "Vamps and Tramps" she reveals(with Glennda Orgasm)with great explicit detail why she loves gay male pornography and how much she dislikes those certain "white bread" men who are members of Gay religious catholic groups. THose who are intellectually insecure will enjoy her work and use her as a pillar in the theme of "Knowledge is Power." Others, such as myself, will be able to see beyond the inadeqaucy and notice that the "success" of her work is only the product of empty cultural sensationalism at its monolithic best.

Quite simply, Paglia is the best literary critic of the past
two decades. Her prose is jargon-free and perpetually
potent; her subject range reveals the most interdisciplin
ary mind of our generation. Unfortunately, her political
incorrectness gives those unwilling to be challenged by her
difficulties an excuse not to read her. She is both a
shibboleth and a pariah. The mere mention of her name in
either feminist or academic circles is enough to insure
condemnation of the offender--merely adding proof to her
critique of the present state of these two institutions.
"Vamps and Tramps" is the "rap music," "performance artist"
Paglia, just as "Sex, Art, and Decadence" is the frequently
provocative and compelling popular essayist and "Sexual Per-
sonae" is the prolix, Nietzschean original thinker. Paglia
has many personae. "Vamps and Tramps" may be a suitable
introduction for some but it is actually more appropriate
for the initiated Paglia-ites. Either of the first two
volumes would be preferable as a starter for the reader
who is serious about the Paglia who can claim the top
position among current literary scholars and cultural

Von Ein Kunde am 30. August 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
The title and the somewhat Madonna-like cover are misleading, because inside is not only obviously media savvy art--the book opens with a script of a small TV piece on "the penis unsheathed"--it is followed by a satisfyingly long essay ("No law in the arena: a Pagan theory of Sexuality") that draws heavily on an incredible variety of cultural history: paganism and myth, art, psychology, politics, religion and ethics, and sociology. It's a renaissance-woman's tour-de-force, liberated and liberating. She's been in and around academe over 20 years, and is in trouble with about all establishments (feminist, gay, church, bourgeois,...). I don't agree with everything she says, but naturally she would want to be engaged rather than agreed with anyway. She revels in the dark dangerous forces, gives them their goddess-like due, and takes on the sexual and moral thought police at every turn.
A quote: "Why are snippy neurotics running our lives?" But you must read to get the real flavor. Please go buy it immediately.
