Senta is a ‘topfamousquote’ about independent women

… and appearing among such illustrious writers as A. S. Byatt, Anton Chekov and Jessica Valenti

This is actually a quote very dear to my poetic heart and I am very surprised that anyone would understand it/me, let alone quote it.

17. “It might help to remember that the writers of these poems were usually men who lived much more powerful and independent lives than the women they worshipped and that their power, the power of the poets, is the power to adore. The power to turn the woman into an object of worship. Into an object of beauty.”
