"A Commentary from/in an Easy-Chair" in The Spectator

“A Commentary from/in an Easy-Chair” are a series of 33 articles Oliphant contributed to The Spectator from December 1889 to November 1890. Like the series “The Looker-on” contributed to Maga and “A Fireside Commentary” to St. James Gazette, these are essentially miscellaneous articles which allowed Oliphant to comment on a wide range of topics, as varied as social events, politics, art, literature and gossip, among others.
