Alice Keppel, Royal Mistress

Alice Keppel, Royal Mistress | Herstory | Scoop.it

Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, who later became Edward VII of the United Kingdom, had an interest in women which is notable even by the promiscuous standards of noblemen.  Naturally, among his dalliances were a plethora of professionals, among them Skittles and La Belle Otero.  His first semi-official mistress was Lillie Langtry, whom we discussed in May; today I’ll introduce you to the last (and longest-lasting) lady to hold that position, from three years before his coronation until the day he died.  She had a number of things in common with Lillie: an ability to get along with their royal patron’s wife, Princess (later queen) Alexandra; a gift for discretion so highly-developed that many people to this day don’t realize (or else deny) that they were whores; and most importantly, a similar motive for taking up the profession.

Villes Thermales - EHTTA - Thermal Towns: Anna de Noailles in Evian-les-Bains

Villes Thermales - EHTTA - Thermal Towns: Anna de Noailles in Evian-les-Bains | Herstory | Scoop.it

In a villa on the shores of Lake Geneva, the memory of a Romanian countess brings back to life the time when Evian-les-Bains used to welcome the literature world.


By her own admission, Anna de Noailles spent a lot of time telling her life story day after day, and receiving the artists she admired and who genuinely worshipped her. But it was only very late on that she gave up writing on the moment and tell of a thrilling existence defined by shared moments, representations of the world and flashes of literature in 'Livre de ma vie' (Book of my life)*. 

 In it, she fondly looks back on the instant success of her first poetry collection 'Le coeur innombrable', in 1901, when she was only 25 years old. In it, she mentions the extravagance of Robert de Montesquiou, who had her texts read by the great Sarah Bernhardt.

Writing That Imagines What It's Like to Be: A Review of Kola Boof's Selected Works

Writing That Imagines What It's Like to Be: A Review of Kola Boof's Selected Works | Herstory | Scoop.it

Let's just spell it out right at the start: Kola Boof is one of the great migrant writers of our time. Her Selected Writings, If My Father Dies I Give Birth to Him Again (edited by Mark Fogarty), underlines the Egyptian-Sudanese-American writer's literary achievements over a wide range of forms as diverse as poetry, memoir, and fiction, (both long and short form) and over a wide range of physical and emotional territory extending from her native Sudan to America, back to Africa, and then back to America again.

Kola Boof: The Message & The Messenger | Herstory | Scoop.it

Perhaps I am too Utopian *wink* but I do believe that when we gain insight & understanding, we can put our hearts & ethics into action. I respect the hell out of Kola Boof. Admire her greatly. Even when her words sting. For behind them, truth rings. I'd like to think there are others out there who can be taught daily, and not just from some 'word a day' calendar.


Gracie talks with Kola about the messages in her book of poems, Nile River Woman.
