“Michael Field” makes the Guardian

The Guardian highlights a poem by the Victorian poet “Michael Field” which was really the pseudonym of Edith Cooper and Katherine Bradley, an aunt and niece who were also lesbian lovers, which is a bit disturbing, but hey, those wacky Victorians got up to all sorts (Freud didn’t come out of nowhere!).  Their poetry is pretty obscure now, so nice to see them get a mention.

  1. I really need to have my books shipped over. I have Emma Donoghue’s book about them and their work, which should be pretty awesome, if I ever get a chance to read it.
