Read from December 04 to 05, 2011

Tolerable for the genre, though it's a genre I personally find intolerable. While I know she was ahead of her time, by contemporary standards it's still hopelessly melodramatic, and it's really pushing it to call it to call her work pre-modernist in any meaningful sense on the strength of a bit of slant rhyme and odd syntax.
