one of the foremost public intellectuals of the twentieth century[edit]

Ridiculous POV.

old comments[edit]

Rebecca West was born December, 21st

My understanding is that the full and correct quote ends, "...differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute."

Personally, I do wish Ms. West had been more gracious toward sex workers, but I don't condone Bowdlerization through convenient ommission. {unsigned}


Methinks unsigned there wishes all past history to be in alignment with their 21st century ideology. Perhaps they missed the fact that one major reason West's work is so powerful is that, unlike many other writers, she is not afraid of taking a stance and being open and honest with her opinions rather than biting her tongue so as not to potentially offended anyone.

Bookman[edit]

I disambiguated the link to The Bookman based on this Google Books result. Not sure why it was sitting around for almost two years when a simple Google search would have cleared it up. --Closedmouth (talk) 09:45, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
