Champion of unbridled conversation, Camille Paglia acquired the nickname “Hurricane Camille” after publishing the 700-page tome on sex, art, and literature titled Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson in 1990. She is one of the most celebrated and castigated scholars of the late 20th century, an “antifeminist feminist, antigay lesbian, and antiliberal liberal” (Playboy). A professor of humanities and media studies at the University of the Arts, Paglia is also the author of Break, Blow, Burn, Vamps & Tramps, and The Birds, a study of Alfred Hitchcock. Glittering Images is a passionate tour of art and images that define our visual world.
