Willa Cather's New York: New Essays on Cather in the City

Synopsis

"This first facts established in Willa Cather's New York are those concerning Cather's familiarity with the city scene before she moved into it, and the importance of locations she moved through daily, once she arrived. Among those locations, the centrally important ones were where she first lived, in Washington Square, and where she first worked, at McClure's Magazine. Both of these sites are replicated in her fiction. But she doesn't arrive in them as a tabula rasa. She had been interested in medicine from her adolescence, as she continued to be until she died. That interest infuses her cityscapes from her earlier stories." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
