    Lou Andreas-Salome is fascinating. She was intimately involved in the personal lives and professional work of Nietzsche (who proposed marriage twice), Rainer Maria Rilke and Freud. When she finally married she did so only on the terms that the marriage would not be consummated,and that she be allowed to travel away from home alone for extended periods of time so she could meet other people and write and develop her mind. Rilke was her first lover; she was in her late 3o's, he was in his early 20 Lou Andreas-Salome is fascinating.

Rilke was her first lover; she was in her late 3o's, he was in his early 20's. Their letters after the end of their romantic relationship were very important to the development of his voice as a poet. She later became a psychoanalyst, and reportedly her gift as a listener and encourager of the other, and her solidness as a person made her a very good therapist.

    Salome is an interesting character; her friendships and relationships with figures like Rilke and Nietzsche have always been her claim to fame, but this book presumably takes a closer look at her work and what it did and the conclusion still is that the most interesting thing about her were the ways she influenced Rilke and Nietzsche. Still, she is an important character in the history of art and ideas, and this book is very valuable as a research resource, as it includes appendixes with her wor Salome is an interesting character; her friendships and relationships with figures like Rilke and Nietzsche have always been her claim to fame, but this book presumably takes a closer look at her work and what it did and the conclusion still is that the most interesting thing about her were the ways she influenced Rilke and Nietzsche. Still, she is an important character in the history of art and ideas, and this book is very valuable as a research resource, as it includes appendixes with her work, and does convey how important she was to the above mentioned figures. Her life itself, if not her work, was interesting as a genuine intellectual and self-possessed woman in the German intellectual milieu who matched and sometimes outmatched her male contemporaries.
