Mimielle’s Musings: 10 Delightful Madwomen You Really Should Get to Know

Today if you Google “women…insanity”, you will mostly get hits for an exercise program that some people advocate with the dubious boast of it of making them vomit.  Instead, I will sit here with my nice cup of milky tea, curled up in my comfy chair and take you on a little tour of The Ophelia Gallery and reveal to you another view and definition in the form of a little list for your future reading pleasure…

Notes & Quotes:

“If a man wanted to get rid of his wife, he would simply get two doctors to certify her and lock her up,” says John Sutherland, Emeritus professor of English Literature at University College London. “It’s what Dickens himself did when his wife kicked up a fuss at his affair.”

Many of these have been made into films but there is nothing quite like letting the madness creep in at 3 am when the world is full of shadows, the silence is all around and you and your mind are all alone together, the only ones awake.

In closing…”Mimi, why only nine, why not 10?”
“Why…does it…bother you?” 🙂

OK then, go read about Ophelia in Hamlet, she will be our #10.

A Musical Tea Party with Emilie Autumn

For the price of $75, thirty-five people per show date will have the opportunity to purchase the Asylum VIP Package, elevating you to Official Asylum Inmate status. Inmates will receive:
»1 concert ticket
»1 hand-signed and numbered limited edition lithograph art print of EA’s “Plague Rat” painting
»1 admission to a pre-show private “Inmates Only” classical violin concert featuring live music by Bach and other great composers performed for you by EA
»1 “Meet & Greet” session with EA, including autograph signing and photo opportunity
»1 commemorative “Asylum Inmate” concert laminate
»Sip a hot cup of the new Asylum Tea as you listen to the violin performance (bringing your own teacup is highly recommended)
»Permission to remain inside the venue after the VIP session, insuring your prime spot at the front of the stage, otherwise known as the “tea & cake” area, for obvious reasons
