Happy birthday, Vernon Lee!
Today is Violet Paget’s birthday: she was born in France, at Chateau-Saint-Leonard on October 14th 1856. As a birthday present, here is the latest issue of The Sibyl, with some of the material gathered during the fantastic Florence conference hosted at the Villa Il Palmerino, the British Institute and the Institut Français de Florence: Violet del Palmerino, aspetti della cultura cosmopolita nel salotto di Vernon Lee, 1889-1935.
Articles and recordings of the papers will be posted gradually, as soon as I receive them. Please, meanwhile, enjoy the various items in the present menu. And get ready for the next Lee conference!
Long Live Lee, and Il Palmerino!
