When one studies philosophy and even theology, one encounters the questions of who am I, and why am I here... why was I created? All of the answers encountered are influenced by our socialization. This is an aspect of our life where we accept that others have had a say in how we are, whether perceived or in action. Anne Rice asked the same questions but started by taking all of the normal assumptions away from me in through a fairy tale.
What would happen if you would find yourself waking up to nakedness and be forced to intimacy at this level in your every day activity? Can you imagine? She so beautifully notes the powerful liberation in nakedness and its accompanied helplessness in showing your true self. It is in this vulnerable state, and complete exposure that true beauty exists. This is because once all of you is exposed you require a level of trust to those around you, to intimacy, that only equates to love, the exchange of that trust. One cannot longer deny the charms, the gifts one has to share. This is such a magnificent reality. It is as if one learns of one's self through others and in exposure accepts all of who we are within as a truth that cannot be denied even in the public and its judgment.Read more ›
This trilogy is not for everyone, BDSM in all its facets, but should at least be given a chance; they are erotic literature, rather than just hot stories to get you going. Erotically, they are certainly on a level with “Venus in Furs” and “The Story of O”, and in my opinion, better written. Over three books, to maintain the level of quality and intensity, Anne Rice displays is an achievement in its own right.
A lot can be read into the stories, philosophically, spiritually, etc. In the end it comes down to a great writer carrying us the reader along for a ride. The story is FANTASY, in great fantasy, there is always a kernel of truth or reality, it does not always have to be literal. We as the reader, will get out of it what we want to put in, and if that is just a hot story-great.
