    Default Anne Rice

    Author of Interview with the Vampire

    **For those of you that have seen the movies Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned, Interview stays pretty true to the book while Queen of the Damned is very different from the book.

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Rice

    Quotes:

    “None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.”


    “We're frightened of what makes us different.”


    "The vampires have always been metaphors for me. They've always been vehicles through which I can express things I have felt very, very deeply."


    "I feel like an outsider, and I always will feel like one. I've always felt that I wasn't a member of any particular group."




    "The whole theme of Interview with the Vampire was Louis's quest for meaning in a godless world. He searched to find the oldest existing immortal simply to ask, What is the meaning of what we are?"




    "First-person narrators is the way I know how to write a book with the greatest power and chance of artistic success."


    "I'm going to keep on dealing with the supernatural in a lot of ways."


    "Stephen King in many respects is a wonderful writer. He has made a contribution. People in the future will be able to pick up Stephen King's books and learn a lot about who we were by reading those books."


    "My own funeral, I'd like to be laid out in a coffin in my own house. I would like my coffin to be put in the double parlor, and I would like all the flowers to be white."


    "I'm usually working on my own mythology, my own realm of created characters. Stories in mythology inspire me, though I may not be conscious of it."


    "I want to love all the children of God - Christian, Jew, Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist - everyone. I want to love gay Christians and straight Christians."


    "I claim Dickens as a mentor. He's my teacher. He's one of my driving forces."


    "I was obsessed with religious questions, the basics: Why are we here? Why is the world so beautiful?"


    "I'm fascinated by almost any mythology that I can get my hands on."


    "When I write something, every word of it is meant. I can't say it enough."


    "The vampire is an outsider. He’s the perfect metaphor for those things. He’s someone who looks human and sounds human, but is not human, so he’s always on the margins."

    INFp. Easy. Alomoes is a mispelling of Alamo. Lestat is a mispelling of Lestan. For comparison/contrast, Lestat is based upon her dual husband ESTp.

    EII > IEI just from a few quotes ( e.g. “None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.” ; "I claim Dickens as a mentor. He's my teacher. He's one of my driving forces." ---?! )

    Don't recall much from Interview with a Vampire ...but I can understand why someone who has a thing for such an outsider figure may seem IEI.

    Dunno, even VI-wise she vibes Delta, not Beta.

    I really love her books and I have almost all of them, including the Sleeping Beauty series. My favorite series by her is The Mayfair Witches. Lots of victim/aggressor action.

    I am also leaning toward IEI.

    In the traditional folktale of "Sleeping Beauty," the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. In the first book of the trilogy, Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquelaure, retells the Beauty story and probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince awakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty's complete and total enslavement to him . . . as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience. Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey will indulge in Rice’s deft storytelling and imaginative eroticism, a sure-to-be classic for years to come.

    Reviews:

    "Articulate, baroque, and fashionably pornographic."
    —Playboy


    "Something very special . . . at once so light and yet so haunting."
    —The Advocate
    Edit: I may be biased since I have already shared I have a love for erotic fairy tales in general.

    Hrrm. You doubt IEI's twisted mind? Fifty shades of Grey is IEI's fantasy. (Never read it, but still, read stuff about it, thought the book was a waste of time)

    Love The Witching Hour (and most everything else by her). We should type the Mayfair witches.

    Omg, I kind of did that already but not with socionics. Let's just say I really got drawn into that series. Maybe a bit obsessed with seeing how it paralleled my life. This is a list of characters I loosely connected to the personalities of people I know. Now I want to connect you to Rowan for some reason. I relate to Mona the most. Please don't ask me why. hahah I may have to refresh my memory a bit but I think it would be fun to try.

    Suzanne Mayfair =
    Deborah Mayfair =
    Charlotte Mayfair =
    Jeanne Louise Mayfair =
    Angelique Mayfair =
    Marie Claudette Mayfair =
    Marguerite Mayfair =
    Katherine Mayfair =
    Mary Beth Mayfair =
    Stella Mayfair =
    Antha Mayfair =
    Deirdre Mayfair =
    Rowan Mayfair =
    Mona Mayfair =
    Morrigan Mayfair =
    Petyr van Abel =
    Cortland Mayfair =
    Lasher =
    Ashlar =
    Julien Mayfair =
    Michael Curry =
    Tarquin "Quinn" Blackwood =
    Garwain Blackwood =
    Aaron Lightner =
    Yuri Stefano =
    Alicia Mayfair =
    Ancient Evelyn =
    Mary Jane Mayfair =
    Suzette Mayfair =
    Beatrice Mayfair =
    Merrick Mayfair =

    ^ I deleted my friend's names above. This was a copy and paste from my notes, Not sure why I didn't put them in alphabetical order.

    "The supernatural world has always been more real to me than the real world. I feel a great surge of energy when I acknowledge that there is a world beyond this one. In my early novels I made up stories about forces that I sensed. Now I write about faith in something in which I completely believe." Anne Rice

    This pretty much sums up how I have always felt. I would change the "there is a world" to "there are dimensions" and "faith" to "trust" but I can relate.

    I do, too, but I will think about it! I relate most to Stella (perhaps on an enneagram 7 level). Rowan feels very cold and controlled to me...And Michael Curry, I think, is SLI.

    Oh yeah. I have had an obsession with vampires too. Has to do with the Beta love for power, I'd assume.
