    1. In her early 20s in the 1880s, Rachilde was struggling to support herself free of parental oversight (ever since a half-hearted drowning attempt in the family reflecting pool freed her from an arranged marriage at age 14) by placing stories with various literary publications in Paris and beyond. This became more difficult when someone spread rumors that she was plagiarizing her works from a deceased Swedish nobleman reached via seance. This turned out to be an attempt by her own mother to sabota [...]

    2. Rachilde is the corporeal essence of a tempest. In the Juggler, she creates an enormously complex creature above gender, above sexuality, above allure, & yet, reflecting as accurately as one ever could, the epitome of these qualities, which could quite possibly inflect autobiographical tones. Rachilde presents her stance on the fickleness of man the instant he obtains the effervescent form of pleasure stemming from sexual intercourse. It is as if the beginning & the end occupy one realm [...]

    3. “This woman let her dress trail behind her like a queen trailing her life.”In my week-long creative writing workshop titled “Quantum Poetics and New Narratives: Writing the Speed of Light” last year in the Naropa Summer Writing Program, a woman was enrolled who was a juggler in a traveling circus group. After introducing Einstein’s theory of general relativity, I asked each student to experiment with the spacetime of the page by writing a poem that might exist in a rocket traveling at [...]

    4. "LA BEBEDORA DE SANGRE Y OTROS CUENTOS"Extraño libro. A la librería que soy asiduo me lo recomendaron, como la versión femenina del "Marqués de Sade", para descubrir en el epílogo que de juventud leyó al Marqués y que participo en los círculos literarios franceses vestida como hombre y con este seudónimo. En estos cuatro cuentos, la mujer como placer culposo está presente. El terror psicológico de la peste que asoló Europa también. Pero es una ficción que debe leerse en perspectiva [...]

    5. This is an odd novel, with odd dialogue, an odd plot and odd characters. It really wasn't my kind of novel, and perhaps it's because I'm not into theatre, but I also found it offensive on many levels (to notions of race, womanhood, and romance.) There's tactics of subversion used to undo establishments of power and oppression, and there's subversion for the sake of subversion--I think this novel encapsulates the latter.To Rachilde's credit, I did enjoy the metaphor of "juggling" (juggling identi [...]
