Oscar Wilde, Salome

Wendy Buonaventura
“What I have to tell you is this: I am resolved that dancing is to be my path. I know that to be a dancer is to be considered in our world little more than a prostitute. But you cannot imagine what is happening here in Berlin. It is different back home, but in Europe dance is being reborn as something more than cheap entertainment by loose women.”
Wendy Buonaventura, Midnight Rose: a life of Maud Allan

Oscar Wilde
“My Salome is a mystic the sister of Salammbô a Saint Thérèse who worships the moon.”
Oscar Wilde

Tove Jansson
“Strangely enough it was the most timid of them all, Salome the Little Creep, who really liked the Hemulen. She longed to hear him play the horn. But alas! The Hemulen was so big and always in such a hurry that he never noticed her.
No matter how fast she ran he always left her far behind, on his skis, and when she at last overtook the music, it ceased, and the Hemulen began doing something else.
A couple of times Salome the Little Creep tried to explain how much she admired him. But she was far too shy and ceremonious, and the Hemulen never had been a good listener.
So nothing of any consequence was said.”
Tove Jansson, Moominland Midwinter
