"This English translation of Friedrich Nietzsche in seinen Werken offers a rare, intimate view of the philosopher by Lou Salome, a free-thinking, Russian-born intellectual to whom Nietzsche proposed marriage at only their second meeting." "Published in 1894 as its subject languished in madness, Salome's book rode the crest of a surge of interest in Nietzsche's iconoclastic philosophy. She discusses his writings and such biographical events as his break with Wagner, attempting to ferret out the man in the midst of his works." "Salome's provocative conclusion - that Nietzsche's madness was the inevitable result of his philosophical views - generated considerable controversy. Nietzsche's sister, Elisabeth Forster-Nietzsche, dismissed the book as a work of fantasy. Yet the philosopher's longtime acquaintance Erwin Rohde wrote, "Nothing better or more deeply experienced or perceived has ever been written about Nietzsche."" "Siegfried Mandel's extensive introduction examines the circumstances that brought Lou Salome and Nietzsche together and the ideological conflicts that drove them apart."--BOOK JACKET

Rainer Maria Rilke and Lou Andreas-Salomé : the correspondence by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this never-before-translated exchange of letters spanning almost thirty years, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke and Lou Andreas-Salome, a charismatic writer fourteen years his senior, chart a relationship that moves from that of lovers to that of mentor and protege to that of deepest personal and literary allies. From the time of their first meeting and consequent affair to Rilke's death in 1926, Rilke and Andreas-Salome reel through extremes of love, hurt, aversion, desire, and need - yet also guide each other in one of the most fruitful artistic exchanges in twentieth-century literature. Despite illness, distance, and multiple estrangements, they manage to cultivate, through intense yet finely honed and often painfully candid prose, an enduring and indispensable friendship, a decades-long heartfelt dialogue that encompasses love, art, and the imagination."--BOOK JACKET

"Now, BOA Editions is proud to present, for the first time in English, You Alone Are Real to Me: Remembering Rainer Maria Rilke, by the poet's lifelong friend, traveling companion, and muse, Lou Andreas-Salome. Writing in 1927, the year after his death, Salome takes us through accounts of their meetings and travels, the dam-bursts of creativity in which Rilke wrote the Sonnets to Orpheus, and the Duino Elegies, and their long correspondence in which Salome was the essential confluent soul who kept Rilke from utter despair."--BOOK JACKET

The erotic by Lou Andreas-Salomé ( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Lou Andreas-Salomé may seem to be a figure remote from us, one belonging to a pre-1914 Europe, but in many ways, she is our contemporary. She traveled in a highly romantic world as socialite, sociologist, and author. She was part of Georg Simmel's salon, the most exclusive in Berlin, frequented by elusive poet Stefan Georg, dramatist Paul Ernst, social theorist and polymath Max Weber, and Georg Lukács, among others. Salomé's unique contribution to the erotic was that she argued sexual difference ran deeper than economics, and equality--the politics of Marx and the ideals of the French Revolution. For Salomé, to think about women and their erotic nature, you must start with their biological and psychological difference, not their economic situation. Salomé was an outstanding theorist. Her books on Nietzsche and on Rilke are major studies. The field of psychoanalysis would not have developed in the way it did without Lou Andreas-Salomé. We cannot understand Freud's "rationalism" or his anti-religious sensibility without Salomé's writings. This new English translation is an essential text of psychoanalysis, one that shaped the very conception of the field."--Publisher's website
