book.jpgBreak, Blow, Burn: Camille Paglia Reads Forty-three of the World's Best Poems (Pantheon)

Firebrand Paglia devotes her energies to a vibrant demonstration of how to read poetry. She attacks the theorists who have made understanding a poem preposterously complex, and she passionately defends the poems she's chosen (from Shakespeare to Joni Mitchell) that represent poetry at its greatest. Best of all, she makes a persuasive case for accessibility in both poetry and criticism.
