Folks; Does anyone happen to know a good, thorough, and readable analysis
of the MT House in Hartford, particularly as a cultural-studies type reading
of the house as representative of Victorian culture, that sort of thing?
We actually have a wonderful building here on SLU's campus, the Cupples
House, (cupples.slu.edu/), that reminds me of Twain's home, and I often
have had student take a tour and then discuss what the building tells us
about the culture. They have some old Italian religious paintings, and much
Tiffany glass, and so on. I did this last year in conjunction with a
reading of SILAS LAPHAM.
thanks in advance,
