Beyond Stateliest Marble

January 4, 2011

Douglas Wilson at Blog and Mablog offers a quote from his book on Anne Bradstreet, Beyond Stateliest Marble:

“Women who demand independence of this kind of familial masculinity are like a plant demanding independence from the soil. The effect is to uproot them, bringing in a life of insecurity, propped up here and there by reassurances from a thoughtful therapist and the regulations of some federal agency.”
