A broad survey of Camp from Marie Antoinette to the 1960s Batman series. Lots of argument, and only a few theoretical climbs up bullshit mountain. I've learned a lot about Camp, even if I'm still not quite sure what it is.

I initially rated this a 4 out of 5, but then I realized at some point that I hadn't read about five essays I really needed to for my thesis, and when I went back and read those I was a lot more impressed by the scope of this anthology. Although camp is still only peripheral to my project, the additional essays I read have provided some really valuable insights.
