it was amazing

Ok, I get what she's trying to say...sort of. Her language is very sophisticated and I found myself having to go back reread passages because I had no idea what she had just said. It's a period piece - her concerns are dated, as well they should be, but I think that the tone of this essay was exactly the way it should be: direct and assertive. She was a scandalous woman in her day - her behavior and thoughts mirror those that would be acceptable in our day and age, not for woman of the late 18th century. I think she sort of contradicts herself somewhere in the essay, but I am not positive since her verbage seems to be above my realm of understanding.
