    About "Marilyn Monroe"

      • Marilyn Monroe

        Marilyn Monroe born Norma Jeane Mortenson June 1, 1926 August 5, 1962 was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s.After spending much of her childhood in foster homes, Monroe began a career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946 with Twentieth Century Fox Her early film appearances were minor, but her performances in The Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve both 1950 , drew attention By 1952 she had her first leading role in Don t Bother to Knock and 1953 brought a lead in Niagara, a melodramatic film noir that dwelt on her seductiveness Her dumb blonde persona was used to comic effect in subsequent films such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes 1953 , How to Marry a Millionaire 1953 and The Seven Year Itch 1955 Limited by typecasting, Monroe studied at the Actors Studio to broaden her range Her dramatic performance in Bus Stop 1956 was hailed by critics and garnered a Golden Globe nomination Her production company, Marilyn Monroe Productions, released The Prince and the Showgirl 1957 , for which she received a BAFTA Award nomination and won a David di Donatello award She received a Golden Globe Award for her performance in Some Like It Hot 1959 Monroe s last completed film was The Misfits, co starring Clark Gable with screenplay by her then husband, Arthur Miller.Marilyn was a passionate reader, owning four hundred books at the time of her death, and was often photographed with a book.The final years of Monroe s life were marked by illness, personal problems, and a reputation for unreliability and being difficult to work with The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of barbiturates, have been the subject of conjecture Though officially classified as a probable suicide , the possibility of an accidental overdose, as well as of homicide, have not been ruled out In 1999, Monroe was ranked as the sixth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute In the decades following her death, she has often been cited as both a pop and a cultural icon as well as the quintessential American sex symbol.


    1. To be honest, I had never noticed how prominently books feature in Marilyn Monroe iconography, but now that it’s been pointed out, it’s almost impossible to miss.Apparently, this was no accident, for as Stanley Buchthal and Bernard Comment ask in their introduction to this volume, do we know of any other actresses from the period who “sometimes took pains to be photographed reading or holding a book?” And this wasn’t merely a ploy to counter a fast-crystalizing reputation as an airhead [...]

    2. Heart wrenching. I have to start out by saying that I honestly have never been a huge Marilyn Monroe buff - bowing my head I admit that I have never seen one of her films. However, I have heard endless talk of this sensationalized woman, as well as having watched a few bios of her and reading articles about her. Marilyn Monroe's story fascinates me and I find her life struggles and unexplained death heart-rendering. This is a woman whose name and story everyone knows and hypothesizes about. When [...]

    3. In her funeral, Lee Strasberg said:“We, gathered here today, knew only Marilyn—a warm human being, impulsive and shy, sensitive and in fear of rejection, yet ever avid for life and reaching out for fulfillment”I think these are the best words to describe who Marilyn really was. I couldn't suppress my tears when I was reading this book. Marilyn Monroe is the saddest person I've ever known. She says: “I seek joy but it is clothed with pain”And she cries: “Help HelpHelpI feel life comin [...]

    4. A lovely book, and it was so amazing to see Marilyn's own writing. She was a woman with many fears, but she was a genius.

    5. I grew up watching Some Like It Hot on an annual basis. My family and I watched musicals from the 1940's and 50's, which meant Marilyn Monroe was a staple in my childhood viewing habits. When I was quite young, I learned that she had been born into deprivation, abused, and changed her name upon her entry into Hollywood. While many books and documentaries have focused on her beauty and allure and duality, they have all (seemingly) done so from the outside. The movie "My Week With Marilyn" was an [...]

    6. If these aptly-named Fragments had been written by anyone other than the iconic Marilyn Monroe, they would have no value. However, for those who want to know what was going on behind the million-watt smile, there are some pieces here that are invaluable. I do feel somewhat hesitant about having read this book, simply because these items (other than the letters written to others) were clearly not meant to be seen by anyone other than Marilyn herself. She jotted down stream-of-consciousness poetry [...]

    7. Norma Jeane Mortenson o Marilyn Monroe, el icono eterno de la belleza y la sensualidad femenina, el rostro perfecto; escondía un talento impresionante. Esa belleza que se consideraba a si misma Jekyll & Hyde, ocultaba un lado lleno de sufrimiento, de melancolía, de pasión y de tristeza que los medios le prohibían mostrar y solo lograron que todo ese dolor creciera en intensidad y la llevara a finalizar su vida abruptamente.Al morir Marilyn Monroe todas sus pertenencias llegan a manos de [...]

    8. As portrayed in her own words, Marilyn Monroe emerges as thoughtful and accomplished -- not characteristics that most biographies emphasize. She had marvelous taste and could decorate a house or cook a meal with panache. Photographs in this book document her avid reading and her craving for the classics. Her diaries, letters and notes record responses to literature even as they reflect the misspellings and grammatical errors of an earnest but self-educated artist.Monroe's unstable aspect certain [...]

    9. Being an avid MM fan I could not help but grab this up as soon as I saw it. I wanted to know if there was anything morethan what was portrayed on the outside, i kind of knew that there was.With duplicates of actual writings of MM and translations of her scribbles one gets to see the more intimate side of "the Goddess". It is a side that few have gotten to see until now. A seemingly fragile yet intellegent woman with glimpses of greatness in her soul. I always knew she had it in her. One has to k [...]

    10. Many fans don't understand what responsibility they place on the object of their lust. Also, no one cares how the day spent this lust, what's his mood, what this person want to talk about, or just talk "silently"? What is in the soul of this person and what story s/ he has behind her/him. Fond of the screen image, so real that no one thinks that a person with the responsibility assigned to him simply ceases to be himself. Fans need "meat and blood," tearing the person in half, calling this as lo [...]

    11. This book came out late last year and I immediately put it on my wishlist. I don't know much about Marilyn Monroe, but I find her fascinating. And I fell in love with her when I watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes for the first time. How can you not love a character as sweet and naive as Dorothy Parker? And, from what I've read, Marilyn was just the same (although maybe not as dumb).Fragments is a collection of notes, poems, and letters that Marilyn wrote and saved. These papers were not discovered [...]

    12. From Lee Strasberg's eulogy at Marilyn Monroe's funeral:Marilyn Monroe was a legend.In her own lifetime she created a myth of what a poor girl from a deprived background could attain. For the entire world she became a symbol of the eternal feminine.But I have no words to describe the myth and the legend. I did not know this Marilyn Monroe. We gathered here today, knew only Marilyn - a warm human being, impulsive and shy, sensitive and in fear of rejection, yet ever avid for life and reaching out [...]

    13. [image error]I am just reading this book as we speak,but I will say this,Fragments is a gripping and moving revelation of the Marilyn Monroe we have never met. It is a must read for anyone who shares the limited understanding of her persona developed over the nearly 50 years since her death. This gripping book presents her in a more appropriate and balanced light. Marilyn Monroe expressed her thoughts wherever she was on whatever was handy, using notebooks and scraps of paper, including hotel st [...]

    14. Usually when one thinks of Marilyn Monroe, they think of a gorgeous, blonde sex symbol. This book displays another side to her that few have heard of. Monroe was an avid reader and sometimes writer with an interest in psychoanalysis. I'm a huge Marilyn Monroe fan so I was interested to read this book to get a different view of her. It's a really interesting look at a person that is still so well known and beloved by so many. Some of the psychoanalysis is not the most exciting but I enjoyed readi [...]

    15. I’ve been a fan of Marilyn since I was a little girl. I’ve read several biographies of her over the years, but this is a different sort of book. It’s a collection put together by an editor of poems, notes, and letters all written by Marilyn herself. It’s not exactly a cohesive collection, but the editor breaks it up well into sections. The book is an interesting glimpse into Marilyn’s life and thoughts, but also a rather sad one. Reading about her sadness and hopelessness in a biograph [...]

    16. I have long believed that I would have had a lot to talk about with Marilyn Monroe if I spent some time with her. You tell someone that and you get a roll of the eyes and maybe some snide joke or remark.This is a collection of notes to herself, letters, and poems in Marilyn’s own handwriting that haven't been previously published.Yeah, it's cashing in on her name for some people, but I'm glad that they made it into a book.Should I feel guilty about reading this?Is it great writing? No, but it' [...]

    17. I read an excerpt of this book in Vanity Fair, and I was intrigued. I can report that the best parts were in fact in Vanity Fair. This book has some gorgeous photographs, but very little content - it shows the writings of a woman who was very confused, and feels intrusive and depressing. Save your money unless you are absolutely Marilyn obsessed.

    18. Always been a fan of Marilyn Monroe, and her "fragments" book just made me love her even more. Her personal poetry and notes truly showed how fragile she was, and I loved this in depth look into her character.This book is also full of photographs, not of her as the nation's sex symbol, but her reading, laughing with friends, and studying notes/scripts."Fragments" brought Marilyn to life yet again.

    19. This book is a study of Marilyn Monroe's writing in diaries, on hotel note papers and on other scraps of her ideas, letters to friends, poems and other pieces. What I especially liked is the book design. Its representation of Marilyn's notes, scanned to be seen as they were written but also transcribed for the reader. I also liked how each section was separated by photograph's of Marilyn Monroe reading.

    20. Actress must have no mouthno feetshouldergirdle hangs lighthangingso-o-olooseeverythingfocus my thought onthe partner--feeling in the end of my fingers- Marilyn Monroe, 1951

    21. As much as I love Marilyn’s poetry, I think the editing left much to be desired. It felt all over the place and would have been more effective presented chronologically.

    22. “try to enjoy myself when I can - I'll be miserable enough as it is." The myth incarnate of both worlds.

    23. This is very hard to review. It isn't even a book, just a collection of fabulous pictures of Marilyn and random notes and thoughts scribbled on bits of paper. How do you criticize something like that?When I first learned about this book I wanted nothing to do with it. The whole thing smacked of exploitation and voyeurism and felt unpleasant. Well, I read it and felt utterly sympathetic to Marilyn. I can't even begin to understand the pressure she was under. Yet during all her years of fame and i [...]

    24. This aptly titled book contains snapshots of actual handwritten pages from Marilyn Monroe's notebooks as well as typewritten diary entries and letters written between the 1950s to her death. Photographs of Marilyn Monroe either reading or writing bookend each chapter. Although a book of scribbling from an unknown writer or poet would never be published, Marilyn Monroe's mystique continues to captivate public attention. This volume of thoughts, impressions, images, and feelings is a bit voyeurist [...]

    25. I've read many books on Monroe over the last 25 years, but Fragments has come along after all this time and put most of them in the shade. Mainly because these are Marilyn's own words, not speculation, and she was a sensitive, witty observer of her own life. Obviously these were private musings and not intended to be viewed in a professional light, and may be misread by some. But perhaps with someone as iconic as MM, who has become almost a subject of fantasy, reading her side of the story can b [...]

    26. I wasn't actually a fan of Marilyn Monroe until I read a biography of her by Donald Spoto. The reason I'm a fan of hers isn't because of the "dumb blonde" movies she made. I'm a fan of her for her human qualities. The ones that I relate to.I got this book the day it came out and I love it. It's one of my most treasured books. It includes beautiful pictures of Marilyn showing the more passionate and intelligent side of her.But best of all is seeing her own handwriting and reading the things she w [...]

    27. I do not know too much about Marilyn's life story, so this book, containing copies of letters, lists, poems, and, yes, fragments, gave me a first insight, with a feeling of uncensored intimacy. As opposed to, maybe, the popular perception of her, she appears very literate and erudite, and, while still conveying the expected traits of wittiness and charm, they are coupled with a fragile confidence and vulnerability. This makes for a much more interesting and curious character than the glamorous, [...]

    28. it shows the depressed Marilyn the real person she ois not a dumb blonde she is a well read person she read Ulysses, Hemingway, Faulkner, Keroauc, Mailer, and Arthur Miller. She had many friends esp writers like Capote, O'Conner.She wrote poetry, documented her life on papertickets.y piece that could be scribed on she was a true human being.e wanted to be happy but no one accepted a smart blond they wanted her to be a 'dumb blonde' and she refused.

    29. Remarkable. The reader sees her own handwriting, the depth of her emotion, sensitivity, and even brilliance. She was more savvy and composed than people think. Very well-read too. The analysis of these written archives is very interesting too. What a loss in her early and mysterious death. But what a find in these intriguing and revealing fragments.

    30. A very good post Marilyn Monroe Collection. It is a beautiful collection of Monroe's personal life, love and everything she ever had written. If you love Monroe's personality, her character and uniqueness, it is a must read for you. You will enjoy reading her handwritten notes and poems with broken English and rhyme.
