The Truth About Lou: A Necessary Fiction

The Truth About Lou: A Necessary Fiction

By Angela Von Der Lippe

Muse, Lover, Poet. Intellectual. Seductress. Icon. 

These are just a few of the words that have been used to describe the elusive force of nature that was Lou Andreas-Salomé. Critics and historians have long puzzled over how this one woman could orbit three of the greatest thinkers of the turn of the twentieth century - Nietzsche, Rilke, Freud - and still remain their equal. The Truth About Lou does the critics one better and offers a compelling answer in the fictional voice of the muse herself.
