Lives of the Muses: Nine Women and the Artists They Inspired
Francine Prose (au)
In this brilliant, wry, and provocative book, National Book Award finalist Francine Prose explores the complex relationships between the artist and his muse. In so doing, she illuminates with great sensitivity and intelligence the elusive emotional wellsprings of the creative process. All nine women loved, and were loved by, their artists, and inspired them with an intensity of emotion akin to Eros: Hester Thrale and Samuel Johnson; Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll; Elizabeth Siddal and Dante Gabriel Rossetti; Lou Andreas-Salome and Friedrich Nietzsche; Rainer Maria Rilke and Sigmund Freud; Gala Dali and Salvador Dali; Lee Miller and Man Ray; Charis Weston and Edward Weston; Suzanne Farrell and George Balanchine; and Yoko Ono and John Lennon.
