For as O discovers, true freedom lies in her pure and complete willingness to do anything for love. I have always wondered why stories so often touted as great romances end tragically. Story of O is no exception. Considered a classic work of erotic literature, it seeks not to arouse the reader, but to caution against desire, a divergence of purpose that perfectly reflects the splintering of body and mind experienced by O. A story has a beginning, middle, and end.
It is with helpless fascination that we watch O be violated and humiliated to please her lover. The anonymous narrator is detached from the proceedings, relating events and reactions with broad strokes and selective insight. This aloofness does not spare the reader.
In this way we take the journey from individual to object with O. It is a difficult and troubling road to travel. We are warned at the beginning.
Until you reach the stage of tears. And flow they do. O surrenders totally to the men who own her and use her. By divorcing her body and will, O finds peace. As an ephemeral supplicant, seen only when her lover wishes to look at her and invisible when he does not, she finds purpose. The twisted spiral of sensual pain is her prison and her pride, triggering a sexual and spiritual transformation through shockingly intense sexual discipline, rather than abstinence and chastity. It is one reason why a novel overflowing with sex enthralls rather than titillates.
Is O a victim or a martyr? In any case, she is willing and oftentimes eager. In the end, I see Story of O as a fable. Be careful what you wish for. Sir Stephen desires the perfect submissive, yet after branding and shackling O as his personal property, he finds that O is not the one. She becomes a common vessel without anything meaningful to fill it, an object to be used but not treasured. We are left asking the question: Did O sacrifice herself for love, or did love make a sacrifice of O?
