Thee Poison Pen – Aphra Behn
“All women together ought to let flowers fall upon the tomb of Aphra Behn, which is, most scandalously but rather appropriately, in Westminster Abbey, for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds. It is she–shady and amorous as she was–who makes it not quite fantastic for me to say to you tonight: Earn five hundred a year by your wits.”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
Resin brooch with beautiful image of the first professional female writer, vintage pen nib dangle, and pretty vintage palest lavender ribbon. One of a kind, ready to ship. Additional images show similar brooch featuring libertine writer Oscar Wilde (sorry, sold).
