Words of Wisdom

I have alot of respect for Camille Paglia. I read a good bit of Sexual Personae, an analysis of periods of art and literature up to the present. I mean, where else can you read that De Sade's writings are a cogent critique of Rousseau's philosophical folly, typified by: "Man was born free, but everywhere he is in chains"? Nature is always dangerous, which is why we avoid it so much.

In any case, here's an interesting interview with Camille, conducted by Robert Birnbaum. In it she talks about what's wrong with art in general, the university and its mission, creative writing programs, even what's wrong with today's so-called leftists
