“To be a woman and a writer / is double mischief, for the world will slight her / who slights 'the servile house,' and who would rather / make odes than beds.”
“... memory is a storm I can't repel.”
“The woman took a train / away from herself. / She thought: I need a change / and wheels make revolutions.”
Dilys Laing, Canadian poet
(1906 - 1960)
Full name: Dilys Bennett Laing.
