Shelves: literature , poland , ukraine Umm, okay The first portion of this book is wonderful. The forced lasciviousness of the female protagonist, the pathetic attempts at seeming like a banshee, a Siren, all draped in furs and spouting some bullshit about Paganism. I have met this girl before, and this boy, I have watched their pitiful dance of apathy, their ham-handed fears of monotony and monogamy, the in my opinion bullshit notion that caring in the romantic sense for one chosen and well-suited person with whom you Umm, okay I mean, I have greeted lovers with apathy, sternness, initial doubts which reached fruition in feelings chilling, freezing, eventually frozen; I would be completely out of touch with myself if I were to believe otherwise.

His early, non-fictional publications dealt mostly with Austrian history. At the same time, Masoch turned to the folklore and culture of his homeland, Galicia. Soon he abandoned lecturing and became a free man of letters. Within a decade his short stories and novels prevailed over his historical non-fiction works, though historical themes continued to imbue his fiction. His works were published in translation in Ukrainian, Polish, Russian and French.
Of the six planned volumes, only the first two were ever completed. By the middle of the s, Masoch abandoned the Legacy of Cain. He did his best to live out his fantasies with his mistresses and wives. Internationale Review At the Pinnacle. International Review , which was published from October, to September, She met Sacher-Masoch after she contacted him, under the assumed name and fictitious title of Baroness Bogdanoff, for suggestions on improving her writing to make it suitable for publication.
On 9 December , Sacher-Masoch and Pistor, who was by then his mistress, signed a contract making him her slave for a period of six months, with the stipulation that the Baroness wear furs as often as possible, especially when she was in a cruel mood. The two travelled by train to Italy. As in Venus in Furs , he traveled in the third-class compartment, while she had a seat in first-class, arriving in Venice Florence, in the novel , where they were not known, and would not arouse suspicion.
Sacher-Masoch found his family life to be unexciting, and eventually got a divorce and married his assistant. According to official reports, he died in Lindheim, Altenstadt, Hesse , in It is also claimed that he died in an asylum in Mannheim in I feel justified in calling this sexual anomaly "Masochism", because the author Sacher-Masoch frequently made this perversion, which up to his time was quite unknown to the scientific world as such, the substratum of his writings.

Although these proofs were communicated to me without restriction, I refrain from giving them to the public. I refute the accusation that "I have coupled the name of a revered author with a perversion of the sexual instinct", which has been made against me by some admirers of the author and by some critics of my book.
As a man, Sacher-Masoch cannot lose anything in the estimation of his cultured fellow-beings simply because he was afflicted with an anomaly of his sexual feelings. As an author, he suffered severe injury so far as the influence and intrinsic merit of his work is concerned, for so long and whenever he eliminated his perversion from his literary efforts he was a gifted writer, and as such would have achieved real greatness had he been actuated by normally sexual feelings.

Plot summary[ edit ] The framing story concerns a man who dreams of speaking to Venus about love while she wears furs. The unnamed narrator tells his dreams to a friend, Severin, who tells him how to break himself of his fascination with cruel women by reading a manuscript, Memoirs of a Suprasensual Man.
