"What I’m arguing in this book is that liberals have to wake up.  Art is spiritual—it uses physical materials, but it’s a spiritual quest, and the artistic mission has a spiritual goal.  But nothing in the ideology or language of current academe—from Berkeley to Harvard—permits anyone to say that."

Watch InstaVision's interview with literary critic and provocateur non-pareil Camille Paglia on her new book Glittering Images, written for homeschooling moms who want to introduce their children to art, and anyone who wants to understand why George Lucas's Revenge of the Sith is the most powerful and significant work of art in any genre (including literature) in the last thirty years.

    Whenever I think of Camille Paglia, and i've said this for 15 years, I can't help but think of Titus 1:12, where Paul (talking about the Cretans) speaks of one of "their own prophets." She is like a secular prophet -- she thinks so outside the box, and has many staggeringly interesting and truthful insights into the arts, language, sexuality, homosexuality -- wow. She's sometimes more than a little provocative. But for the open-minded, she's very refreshing, I find.

    I DON'T THINK THIS BOOK IS FOR HOMESCHOOLING PER SE BUT CAN ALSO BE USED FOR THIS PURPOSE.

    I still think that one duel from Revenge of the Sith was extravagent, over-indulgent, and unneeded. Their next fight in A New Hope carried more gravitas even without RotS's fantastic imagery. Even so, I enjoyed Ms. Paglia's commentary, and as an artist, I'm better off for having listened.
