Paglia seeks to demonstrate the unity and continuity of western culture. Accepting the canonical western tradition and rejecting the modernist idea that culture has collapsed into meaningless fragments, she argues that Judeo-Christianity did not defeat paganism, which, along with androgyny, sadism, and the aggressive western eye, continues to flourish in art, eroticism, astrology, and pop culture. Paglia follows these and other themes from Nefertiti and the Venus of Willendorf to Apollo and Dionysus, from Botticelli and Michelangelo to Shakespeare and Blake and finally to Emily Dickinson, who, along with other major nineteenth-century authors, becomes a remarkable example of Romanticism turned into Decadence.
