"The winds were cruel to women that came under their tyranny. They were at them ceaselessly, buffeting them with icy blasts in winter, burning them with hot breath in summer, parching their skins and roughening their hair, and trying to wear down their nerves by attrition, and drive them away. (...) How could a frail, sensitive woman fight the wind? How oppose a wild, shouting voice that never let her know the peace of silence?- a resitless force that was at her all the day, a naked, umbodied wind- like a ghost more terrible because invisible--that wailed to her across waste places in the night, calling to her like a demon lover? "
