Volume 57.1 Spring 2014


The Spring 2014 issue of the Willa Cather Newsletter and Review wraps up an exciting 2013, while also serving as a preview for a busy year ahead! Marvin Friedman interviews Gregory Spears, the composer behind 2013's Paul's Case opera, and Julie Olin-Ammentorp recollects the excellent scholarship and Cather camaraderie at last summer's International Seminar in Flagstaff. Françoise Palleau-Papin and Richard M. Berrong each explore parallels between Cather and French writer Pierre Loti, while Isabella Caruso examines Cather's appreciation of Italian actress Eleonora Duse. These, along with a John Murphy review of a recent issue of Letterature d'America devoted entirely to Cather scholarship, whets the appetite for the upcoming Willa Cather Symposium in Rome, June 12-14.
