Best museum for a Plathian date (2008)


The FRICK COLLECTION is the stuff of 1960s poetry, as in Frank O'Hara's "Having a Coke With You": "I look/at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world/except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it's in the Frick/which thank heavens you haven't gone to yet so we can go together the first time." Girl Interrupted at Her Music, a Vermeer there, provides the title—and is also a focal point—of Susanna Kaysen's shades-of–The Bell Jar memoir Girl, Interrupted.
