These are great Dan! What a fabulous idea -- I particularly like this last one. You really captured it!

Colin Page said...

Dude, I think she was a lady, just not a super feminine one, or one with a super feminine name. If memory serves she was a friend of his who was a poet. I'll have to look this up now to make sure.

Thanks Carol

Hi Eden, thank you, it's a very difficult expression or lack of expression to capture.

Hey Colin, Is this like " a boy named Sue"? Let me know, vie never heard of a woman named Vernon.

Dan,

Vernon Lee was a pseudonym. Her name was Violet Piaget. She was a writer and close friend of JSS. I can't remember if they met through mutual friendship with Henry James.
