Speaking of eros

My friend Patricia Kaufman has been making books and art for many years. She recently shared a look at her new book, currently in production, entitled Frighten the Horses! Words by Women for Women. The title derives from a famous mot by Mrs Patrick Campbell, (Shaw's starring actress, by the way, in Pygmalion.)

I was struck by this quote from Marilyn French, which accompanies one of Pat's paintings - it just seemed like something Ovid, or a good reader of Ovid, might say. Click to enlarge the image.
