  • Excerpt from 1984 by George Orwell

    "It had never before occurred to him that the body of a woman of fifty, blown up to monstrous dimensions by childbearing, then hardened, roughened by hard work till it was coarse in the grain like an overripe turnip could be beautiful. But it was so, and after all, he thought, why not? The solid contourless body, like a block of granite, and the rasping red skin, bore the same relation to the body of a young girl as the rosehip to the rose. Why should the fruit be held inferior to the flower?"
