source/authenticity of Angela Carter quote re Wordsworths [Apr. 1st, 2007|05:36 pm]

over 15 years ago an English professor told my criticism class his favourite Angela Carter quotation — a quip about Wm. and Dorothy Wordsworth.  "For every man who writes poetry, there's a woman who thinks the sun shines out of his asshole."  Any know if this is genuine, or the source?  I don't think that it's in that essay about the Wordsworths in Nothing Sacred.  Any help appreciated.

The actual quote is, "Behind every great man is a silly woman who thinks the sun shines out of her darling's arse-hole and believes his over-sensitive fingers will rot off if he does the washing-up."
