Woman and Modernity: The (Life)Styles of Lou Andreas-Salome - Reading Women Writing (Paperback)Biddy Martin (author)
- Publisher out of stock
Woman and Modernity provides what previous studies of Salome have in large part neglected to offer-a sustained investigation of the literariness of Salome's texts and of Salome as a significant reader of modernity. Focusing on key encounters in Salome's writings, such as her exchanges with Nietzsche, Ibsen, Rilke, Freud, and late nineteenth-century middle-class German feminists such as Dohm and Stucker, Martin approaches Salome's life and work as a series of strategic negotiations concerning the place of women and the meaning of femininity.
