Social critic, pop culture enthusiast, feminist, and professor Camille Paglia has a new book coming out tomorrow called “Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art From Egypt To Star Wars.” In it she devotes an entire chapter to the visual awesomeness of “Revenge of the Sith” and calls George Lucas the world’s greatest living artist. No, really.
Paglia is a Star Wars fan; she has appeared in documentaries devoted to the topic and she has referred to the saga from time to time in her columns. Still, good for her for referring to the lack of recognition of Lucas’s work from the establishment as “scandalous.”
