Image in Outline introduces the reader to Lou Andreas-Salomé's significant engagement with modern thought. Through detailed explorations o fsome of her major texts, Brinker-Gabler examines Andreas-Salomé's contributions to contemporar ydiscourses on meaning, perception, memory, and the unconscious. Situating her analyses within Andreas-Salomé's historical, social, and intellectual contexts, this new reading utilizes a theoretical frame informed by thinkers such as Benjamin, Bergson, and Freud, and current theoretical perspectives by Irigaray, Grosz, and Kristeva. Brinker-Gabler argues that Andreas-Salomé ― committed as she was to the"double direction" of rigorous thought and individual nuancing ― refocused dominant visions of gender, sexuality, culture, religion, and creativity through a female lens. In a "disenchanted world" (Weber), Andreas-Salomé offered an image epistemology or"aesthetics of b(u)ilding," as Brinker-Gabler calls it, that seeks to retrieve the multilayered past embedded in individuals and cultural forms, thus providing positive accounts of sexual and cultural difference,experience, narcissism, and creativity in modern life.

Review:

Proceeding from its lucid analysis of relatively known territory in Andreas-Salome criticism--the 'Human Being as Woman' essay -- to the less discussed Rilke texts, Brinker-Gabler's Image in Outline: Reading Lou Andreas-Salome opens new vistas and insights on Andreas-Salome's surprisingly multidisciplinary writings and thought. Fascinating throughout is the kaleidoscope of links that integrate Andreas-Salome's developments to a broad historical range of influences and echoes, likewise preceding from the known -- Nietzsche, Freud -- to the new, fostering new insights on this author's range and contexts: back to Spinoza, Baroque emblems, Leibniz, and Darwin; forward to Irigaray, Kristeva, and Benjamin. Theoretically dense yet lucid, Image in Outline is a welcome new pillar in recent decades' discourse on Andreas-Salome's contribution to modern cultural and literary thought at the turn of the twentieth century. - "Raleigh Whitinger, Professor of German, University of Alberta, Canada"
With this book, Gisela Brinker-Gabler makes an important contribution to the scholarship on Lou Andreas-Salome, bringing Andreas-Salome into dialogue with some of her own contemporaries, such as Henri Bergson, Walter Benjamin, and Martin Buber, as well as with some of our contemporaries, including Luce Irigaray, Elizabeth Grosz, and Julia Kristeva. Brinker-Gabler shows convincingly that Andreas-Salome was an important and innovative modern thinker who made significant contributions to discourses on gender and cultural difference, border crossings, creativity, and the human condition. This book will be of interest both to Lou Andreas-Salome scholars and to those who want to learn more about the interdisciplinary discourses circulating in Europe at the turn of the last century. - "Muriel Cormican, Professor of German, University of West Georgia, USA
