quote 2014-11-24 02:31
Soon, I was as famous for my eunuch as I was for my beauty and my devilish temper. I bought myself a lynx and a small black girl to carry my train, and I wore dresses that were cut as low as my navel and left my long red-gold hair flowing freely like a banner of war. So, I became the most expensive and eagerly sought-after courtesan in Venice.
Bitter Greens - Kate Forsyth

pg. 236 Selena


The strength and determination of a courtesan in 1500 Venice of ensuring her protection from men as well as their admiration/desire of her.

"I think sometimes when we find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we're imagining it. Because it's the most painful kind of hope there is. It can be ripped away so easily. By indifference. By death. By...the need for a political marriage. Or maybe that last one is just me."
