“To Penelope, men were conquests, attributes, but they were also enemies; they belonged to the species that must never be granted more than the amount of time and attention she considered they deserved. Her tone with such men was flirtatious, mocking, never serious; she spread about her a propaganda of rapid affairs, rapidly consummated, with a laughing lack of commitment on both sides. She seemed to take a pride in in the steady succession of names. She was, Edith saw, accomplished in venery…She considered men to be a contemptible sex, and her eyes would sparkle when she recounted tales of conquest. ‘That dreadful little man,’ she would say dismissively, of someone who did not know the rules of her game.” -?

From a 1903 New York Times review of one of Mary MacLane’s books. “A revelation of self which is not interesting or sympathetic.”
