The gods still reign


Don't talk to me
of civilization
and its decline:
the gods still reign.

These lines, translated by Julia Vickers, come from a poem Lou Andreas-Salome (1861-1937) wrote as a teenager. Salome went on to become a prominent German novelist, critic and pioneering psychoanalyst. A new film by Cordula Kablitz-Post tells the story of her extraordinary life. It will be released in the United States in Spring 2018.
