Wesley Stace
“They change what they do not like,’ said Jessold, referring to the singers. ‘And they do not like what they cannot remember. That accounts for the basic truth of folk-song.”
Wesley Stace, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer

Wesley Stace
“(These younger composers were generally male, but then composers were almost exclusively male. Even the female composers were almost exclusively male.)”
Wesley Stace, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer

Margaret Atwood
“I remember walking in art galleries, through the nineteenth century: the obsession they had then with harems. Dozens of paintings of harems, fat women lolling on divans, turbans on their heads or velvet caps, being fanned with peacock tails, a eunuch in the background standing guard. Studies of sedentary flesh, painted by men who'd never been there. These pictures were supposed to be erotic, and I thought they were, at the time; but I see now what they were really about. They were paintings about suspended animation; about waiting, about objects not in use. They were paintings about boredom. But maybe boredom is erotic, when women do it, for men.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

“If you are the light, if your enemies are darkness, then there’s nothing that you cannot justify. There’s nothing you can’t survive, because there’s nothing that you will not do.”

Margaret Atwood
“I wait. I compose myself. My self is a thing I must now compose, as one composes a speech. What I must present is a made thing, not something born.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale
