Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 14 January 1845: "Did I say anything to you of ""Fernande"" -- Dumases --? I fancy I did, during the reading of the first seven pages. Beware of it, I tell you now -- If Mr Lovejoy ordered it for his library, he will be taken to be disorderly by ""prude Angleterre."" As Schlegel said of the ""Sad shepherdess,"" that it was ""unchaste praise of chastity"", so we might reverse the saying for ""Fernande."" At least -- the heroine is a courtezan [sic] by profession -- but you wd not guess it, except by her talking too much of modesty [...] for the rest, she is a Grace, a muse, a saint & martyr. No virtuous woman could have half her fascinations -- (& that"s the moral of the whole!) [...] M. Dumas"s ""Fernande"" will make some of your country gentlemen open their eyes, be certain, if Mr Lovejoy introduces her into Berkshire -- I advise you to advise against it."
