Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"I say vagina because I want people to respond," says playwright Eve Ensler, creator of the hilarious, disturbing soliloquies in The Vagina Monologues, a book based on her one-woman play. And respond they do--with horror, anger, censure, and sparks of wonder and pleasure. Ensler is on a fervent mission to elevate and celebrate this much mumbled-about body part. She asked hundreds of women of all ages a series of questions about their vaginas (What do you call it? How would you dress it?) that prompt some wondrous answers. Standouts among the euphemisms are tamale, split knish, choochi snorcher, Gladys Siegelman--Gladys Siegelman?--and, of course, that old standby "down there." "Down there?" asks a composite character springing from several older women. "I haven't been down there since 1953. No, it had nothing to do with [American president] Eisenhower." Two of the most powerful pieces include a jagged poem stitched together from the memories of a Bosnian woman raped by soldiers and an American woman sexually abused as a child who reclaims her vagina as a place of wild joy. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Audio CD
To summarize: Today, "The Vagina Monologues" may still be exciting and meaningful for an audience in the Bible Belt of Bush Country, but for females (and males) who have enjoyed watching "Sex and the City", "The Vagina Monologues" seem dated, stilted, pretentious, and sometimes even annoying.

Maybe the most insightful criticism of "The Vagina Monologues" was made by an ex-lawyer-now-domina-for-women whom Ensler quotes. The ex-lawyer said that she felt that she hadn't recognized herself in Ensler's monologue based on an interview with her; she felt that Ensler's play had created a distance to the vagina and not captured the spirit. I think this criticism applies to most of Ensler's monologues.

Right from the start of her play, Ensler sets out to envelop the vagina in the gobbledygook of female mysticism. Her interviews start with the question what the interviewee's vagina would want to dress in. So right from the outset of her mission, Ensler shows a tendency to veil the blunt reality of the vagina with metaphors and similes. She creates distance even in her performance: Her contorted rendition of the word "c*nt" in the hysterical singsong of a medieval mystic is embarrassing to listen to - why can't she just say the word (as Glenn Close apparently did)? Or do we catch a glimpse of Ensler's own inhibitions here?? A hint of this enraptured singsong can also be found in her monologue on giving birth - that's one of her most unconvincing pieces. Maybe she should just have acknowledged that she hasn't given birth herself and therefore prefers to skip the topic instead of coming up with some balderdash of mystic-metaphoric clichés?

This book had to be the most amazing book I have read in years. I picked it up and didn't put it down until I was finished. What Eve Ensler has done to reclaim the word "vagina" and make it ours again it both breathtaking and brave. She has started the break down of so many sexual and societal barriers and has started the road to shameless sexual sucess. But the book is not only about having better sex and knowing how to please yourself. It is about becoming more comfortable with being a woman and knowing who you are and where to locate all of your parts. I have been waiting for a book like this for years and I am so proud that it should come in such a wonderful form as the beautiful and moving poetry/prose of this wonderful author. To any man or woman who feels that they know everything there is to know abot a woman's vagina, read this book. It will not only change your views but it will rock your world. I'm in love with this book. Well done.

Von fred jones am 24. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
There IS a place for this book, for the usual feminist political reasons, as there are still too many women languishing in ignorance and fear.
But I found the book to be disingenuous and self-serving at spots. For example, in the section about female circumcision in Africa the author failed to mention that it's women who do this to other women. It's old women who teach younger women to do this. Perhaps it would have been embarassing to point out that Sisterhood might not be uniform or consistent with Western preconceptions: damned if my book will sacrifice politics for facts!
And it would have been interesting to include a bit of monologue about American attempts to "educate" women in Africa about how horrible we think their custom is, and the extent to which African women care about what American women think of them. I suppose the laughter (or confusion) of African women would have made for a rather counter-productive monologue.

This book is a life changer. I read it six months ago and I cannot believe how much it has liberated me and my attitude towards my body. Like everyone says, you cannot put it down once you begin reading it. Ensler talks about the things I've kept hidden. I never knew just how central to my life my vagina is. A chapter about menstruation, my god, people talk about this? A chapter about orgasm and hair and the fear we have of our own body. The part we never like to talk about. The chapter on birth is amazing, and until then I never knew how complex the woman's vagina is. For a woman of 22, this is a very important read. If you ever get to see her read from The Vagina Monologues, go. She puts on an amazing show. Some people think it's simple but I feel it's life-changing. I would be a very different person without it and not many books can have that kind on impact.

Von Ein Kunde am 27. Januar 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I had always considered myself a pretty outspoken feminist (but not a man-hater, more a woman supporter). This book freed me of inhibitions I didn't even know I had. I had never been down there, not really, until I read this book and was inspired to love every part of myself. This is a liberating book for any woman who reads it, and as a teen I feel all girls should recieve this book as a gift once they get their period, and all men should be required to read this to get a better understanding of women. I think that this is a book that speaks honestly to all people. It isn't a defamation of anyone, but a celebration of life and womanhood.
