Margaret Oliphant : The Lover and his Lass

'My dear Mrs Oliphant, - I cannot help venturing to express the admiration with which I have been reading the "Lover and his Lass." It is by your powerful, truth-seeing imagination, and not by what pedants are prone to describe as "analysis" of character, that you enchant us [...] I "pitied myself," as they say in Cumberland, when I got to the end of the book.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Alexander Kinglake      Print: Book
