Sapolio Ad, Images 4-5

From Elizabeth Bishop and the Literary Archive by Bethany Hicok

  • Page four shows the white "master of the house" gazing in distress upon his white classical statue of a woman covered in dirt. Page five shows the "lady of the house" with her son and a grubby mantelpiece and table, which she is unable to clean. The child is about to drink some poisonous liquid.
