Subj:What a dangerous method!

That surely made me think it over.

Hi Kato,
My truly romance-loving Taliesin,

Thanks so much for all of this.
I'm going to save it so I can savor it all carefully when time allows.

I'm especially grateful for the summary of how "The Piano" ended.
I suppose Alistair finally came to the sad conclusion that Ada would not ever love him like she loved (or was attracted to) Baines and possibly he felt badly for inflicting such a permanent injury.

I think if he had made a bit more effort from the start and displayed some affection towards Ada, the outcome may have been quite different.
Truly, he would have been a better match for her, I think; rather than her ending up with an illiterate tatooed native fellow.
Ah, but attraction? ... who knows?!
Thanks again, though; I did want to know how it all wrapped up.

A Dangerous Method

2011 Official Trailer

Back to the Dangerous Method, I think the situation with her father would not necessarily be one of love (doubtful, really) or true hate, but somewhere in between.
Because she felt turned on the time he beat her, in her mind the association was formed between violence and sex---an association that, even though she was an intelligent woman, seemed to persist.
Perhaps she rose about it eventually, and it did seem she married a rather straight fellow eventually and was at least marginally happy.
Such interesting creatures we are, true?


A Dangerous Method


(danger03.jpg)

A Dangerous Method is a 2011 historical film directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Vincent Cassel.
The screenplay was adapted by Academy Award-winning writer Christopher Hampton from his 2002 stage play The Talking Cure, which was based on the 1993 non-fiction book by John Kerr, A Most Dangerous Method: the story of Jung, Freud, and Sabina Spielrein.

The film marks the third consecutive and overall collaboration between Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen (after A History of Violence and Eastern Promises).
This is also the third Cronenberg film made with British film producer Jeremy Thomas, after completing together the William Burroughs adaptation Naked Lunch and the J.G. Ballard adaptation Crash.
A Dangerous Method was a German/Canadian co-production.
The film premiered at The 68th Venice Film Festival and was also featured at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Plot

Set on the eve of World War I, A Dangerous Method is based on the turbulent relationships between Carl Jung, founder of analytical psychology, Sigmund Freud, founder of the discipline of psychoanalysis, and Sabina Spielrein, initially a patient of Jung and later a physician and one of the first female psychoanalysts.




SOURCE: "A Dangerous Method"
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I think Jung was happy with his marriage as well; both Jung and Sabina had a close working association, both were exploring the mind and its workings, so they had a lot in common to start; the affair, the sex, the violence was an exciting secret and additional turnon for both of them, but not truly necessary for their longterm happiness.
That's just my take on it.
Perhaps I'm out in left-field.

"Electra Complex"

(February 10, 2012)


Wow! Thanks again for all this,
I'm looking forward to reviewing the entire message later,
Have a good weekend, kiddo,

I'm going to a Homelessness Workshop tomorrow at Christ Church Cathedral with Judy Graves, the city's "voice" for the homeless in Vancouver, a woman who has sacrificed her life, really, for those in need.



As part of the Cathedral's soup kitchen team, they wanted to give us a greater insight into the situation and look at possible solutions or at least ways to further help the needy.

Love, Diane ~



Love, Diane ~

Hello, Diane,

I'm so glad to know that you'll visit London.
I was over there about 15 years ago.
I wish I could go there with you again.

some day... some day... ha, ha, ha, ha, ha ...

I've been reading many books regarding "Madame Butterfly" since I received your last mail about "A Dangerous Method."
I was too busy reading those books to write my articles in English.

How come Sabina went through kinky sex life?

I read a book titled "Butterfly" written by Paul Loewen.


(butterfly2.jpg)

According to the author, Paul Loewen lived in Heidelberg during the World War II.
One day, while listening to a record of the opera "Madama Butterfly," his mother became upset unusually.
When she calmed down eventually, she revealed the secrets of her upbringing.
A Japanese women who became a model of Madama Butterfly had, in fact, a daughter, not a son.

The girl would later married a German doctor who had been a consultant at a hospital in Tokyo.
Four years later she gave birth to a baby boy.
That woman is his mother and the boy is the author---Paul Loewen.

That's what the preface says.

When Loewen learned that the daughter of the so-called Madame Butterfly was his mother, he had a strong interest in the true story of his grandparents.
After the World War II, he had the opportunity to visit Japan in the United-Nations-related work.
In Nagasaki, he discovered the memoirs and letters of the late Pinkerton.

Because the contents of the notes and letters were decadent and sexual, they were not published at the time.
However, in the wake of the death of his mother in 1976, he decided to publish by editing the materials discovered in Nagasaki as well as the diary of Sharpless obtained in the United States in order to reveal the true story of his grandparents.



In the past years, many researchers have tried to find the model of Madame Butterfly of the opera.
Did the model ever exist?
If so, who was she?
This mystery has not been clearly elucidated until now.

Although the discovered materials are certainly suspicious and indeed lacking in credibility, Loewen's literary Work-up seems quite effective in the sense that the reader really looks forward to the mystery and wants to solve it.



The story begins when Kate (Kathryn Hamilton) and Henry Pinkerton were still young lovers.
Kate is a woman who combines the elegance of demeanor equipped with extraordinary intelligence and breathtaking beauty as well as delicate sensibility.

I've found several common traits between Kate and Sabina.
That's why I've been reading the related books in order to get insights into Kate's as well as Sabina's mind.

Well...so much so that I'll write an article about it, and hope you'll enjoy reading it.
I'll send another mail to you while you're enjoying your journey in London so that you will be able to read as a bit of refresher.

In any case, please have a great time in London, learn as much as possible, and experience a great deal of adventure and romance. :)
I'm looking foward to hearing fascinating and inspirational stories from you.

Your truly travel-loving Taliesin,
Kato



:) with love



(To be followed)
