: : " She is a sweet lady of light."
: : What does "of light" mean here?
: I don't know if there's a connection. But it reminds me of Florence Nightingale, "The lady with the lamp." Of course, Lady Liberty carries a torch too.
: What is the context? Is this part of a song or poem?
No, this phrase comes from a novel. But there is no context because it is from a so-called 'dictionary' attached to the novel.
