Books At Mrs Lippincote's

Elizabeth Taylor
  • The allusiveness of At Mrs. Lippincote’s is slyer, more indirect than its deep and displayed Brontëphilia. In a way, we can see it as playfully diverting our attention, however fixed it has been on the serious and ambitious lineage she has drawn from the Brontës, away from the real inspiration for the book, Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
