Dorothy Richardson to Miss Plater, 1940: March 11. (1 item (2 pp.))

Commenting on the author of a volume of essays concerned with female novelists, including George Eliot and Charlotte Bronte, [attributed to Muriel Agnes Masefield]. Richardson disagrees with the author's critical analysis of the Brontës as neurotics who consider themselves geniuses; claims surprise that the author is uncritical in her acceptance of an [unnamed] theory, though she feels that mere acceptance shows "good background pattern both for classification and commentary."
