"A Castaway" Abridged

A less-than-charitable cartoon of Augusta Webster's "A Castaway." It's about the life of a Victorian prostitute. I wish I could be more specific, but the poem kinda goes all over the place. It's a dramatic monologue, and the speaker, Eulalie, is talking to herself about... well, her life.

I definitely learned a lot about Victorian prostitution in my research for this paper. So, like, if you ever need to know about Victorian prostitutes...

(probably the only thing I didn't learn was how to draw them...)
