Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811813401, Paperback)

Beauty is more than skin deep. In this anthology of fiction, science, lore, and just plain gossip, a remarkable range of authors ruminates on the subject that captures everybody's attention. Camille Paglia talks about pagan beauty, Sophia Loren offers a few tips, Edmund Burke waxes philosophical about the qualities of beauty, Toni Morrison has a couple of things to say about Ernest Hemingway's idea of good looks, and Helen Gurley Brown cautions us never to apply lipliner with a dull pencil. Theoretical writings on bosom size, ugliness, and beauty pageants, as well as odes to beauty and two versions of "Beauty and the Beast" make Beauty alluring to every beholder.
