How is an example of “camp,” by Susan Sontag’s description? Or, thought another way: discuss what in particular interests you about the play, and how those moments/aspects of the play can be thought of as “camp.”( you have to answer this) Sontag’s “notes” are attached –Oscar Wilde 7. All Camp objects, and persons, contain a large element of artifice. 8. Camp is a vision of the world in terms of style — but a particular kind of style. It is the love of the exaggerated, the “off,” of things-being-what-they-are-not. 9. As a taste in persons, Camp responds particularly to the markedly attenuated and to the strongly exaggerated. 23. In naīve, or pure, Camp, the essential element is seriousness, a seriousness that fails. Of course, not all seriousness that fails can be redeemed as Camp. Only that which has the proper mixture of the exaggerated, the fantastic, the passionate, and the naīve. Camp: the sensibility of failed seriousness, of the theatricalization of experience. Camp refuses both the harmonies of traditional seriousness, and the risks of fully identifying with extreme states of feeling. 56. Camp taste is a kind of love, love for human nature. It relishes, rather than judges, the little triumphs and awkward intensities of “character.”
