263 PAGLIA, CAMILLE. Sexual Personae: Art And Decadence From Nefertiti To Emily Dickinson.
Vintage Books, New York:1991. 0679735798 / 9780679735793 Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Good condition. 
Is Emily Dickinson "the female Sade"? Is Donatello's David a bit of pedophile pornography? What is the secret kinship between Byron and Elvis Presley, between Medusa and Madonna? How do liberals and feminists - as well as conservatives - fatally misread human nature? This audacious and omnivorously learned work of guerilla scholarship offers nothing less than a unified-field theory of Western culture, high and low, since the Egyptians invented beauty - making a persuasive case for all art as a pagan battleground between male and female, form and chaos, civilization and daemonic nature. Includes an Index. "A remarkable book, at once outrageous and compelling, fanatical and brilliant . . . one must be awed by [Paglia's] vast energy, erudition and wit." - Washington Post Book World
