I came across this little gem of an essay and I wanted share it. It is attributed to Fiona MacLeod. "Fiona MacLeod" is a pseudonym of William Sharp (1855-1905). Sharp was a member of the Order of the Golden Dawn and an associate of Swinburne and of W. B. Yeats. Fiona, as it turns out, was more than a mere pseudonym for Sharp, and something close to an alternate personality.
Its been a bit busy around here, and I got off schedule... But I think this is great.
