Daphne Phelps

  • To live opposite Etna, the highest, most active volcano in Europe is indeed a privilege. A queen and a spitfire, I feel she is essentially feminine. The exquisite, snow-covered mountain rising out of the clouds, seemingly so remote and unearthly, can suddenly be transformed into a menacing monster, hurling fire and rocks thousands of metres into the sky, followed by a great river of molten, flaming lava, kilometres long, slashing the mountain in two.

Daphne Phelps, English writer

(1911 - 2005)
