I’m currently working on a translation of Beatrice Warde’s The Crystal Goblet for a French publisher, and there's a rather obscure point which I’d like to have your cooperation about. At some point, Mrs. Warde alludes to “a virago with a hatchet” which was supposed to be a fierce enemy of wine (if I’m not mistaken) — does someone know what all this is about ?
Thank you very much
