The Monstrous Feminine

"The female is, as it were, a deformed male."  Aristotle

"He buys me books, but begs me not to read them, because he fears they joggle the mind. I would like to learn. Can you tell me how to grow, or is unconveyed, like melody or witchcraft?" Emily Dickinson

"Sir, a woman composing music is like a dog walking on its hind legs. It is not done well, but you are surprised to find it done at all." Cecil Gray
