Scholarly pursuit of the weekend: Frodo as Paglia's beautiful boy

If you don't read my other journal, but do have interest in sexual personae like Camille Paglia wrote about, then you might want to see today's entry in which I decide that Elijah Wood's Frodo is a Western-classical "beautiful boy."

(Read it here. Complete with illustrations!)

Mostly I'm just proud of myself for writing something resembling a Lit paper for the first time in possibly years. Heh. Yay, pretension!
