LOU ANDREAS-SALOMÉ

 

 

As a young girl, Lou Andreas Salomé blatantly refuses to accept the idea of one day becoming a wife and mother, so she makes the decision never to marry. She chooses instead to devote her time to her intellectual interests; art, philosophy and literature. She receives several marriage proposals - including those made to her by Siegmund Freud and Friedrich Nietzsche. However, she turns them all down point blank. But things change when Lou falls in love with the young Rainer Maria Rilke. Their relationship, however, is short-lived. At the age of 72, Lou moves to Göttingen where she lives alone and takes ill. But then, the young Ernst Pfeiffer appears on the scene and, in his company, Lou Andreas Salomé once again begins to thrive.
