Claw-in-Glove…

*

Wherever the spirit of industry

triumphs over the aristocratic spirit

woman aspires to the economic and legal independence of a clerk.

*

‘Erica-the-Cleric’, stands inscribed over the portal of our modern society.

*

There has been an almost masculine stupidity about this movement

of which real women, that is to say clever women, are heartily ashamed.

*

There has been a desire to make woman more cultivated

as if history had not declared that to cultivate anything

is to make it weaker.

*

That in woman which inspires respect is her ‘nature’,

which is more ‘natural’ than that of man,

her beast-of-prey suppleness and inner savagery.

*

Woman is being divested of her enchantment.

*

Europe, O’ Europe…

*

No Goddess lies concealed within this crazy notion.

*

It is just an idea, and a thoroughly modern idea at that!
