Mademoiselle De Maupin


I've fallen in love with a beauty in pourpoint and boots, a proud Bradamante who disdains the clothes of her sex, and leaves you at times floating in the most disquieting perplexities; - her features and body are indeed the features and body of a woman, but her mind is unquestionably that of a man. My mistress is a first-rate swordswoman, and would be proud of the most experienced provost marshal; she has fought I don't know how many duels, and killed or wounded three or four people... Singular qualities for a mistress!
