Influence of French Culture on Willa Cather
2008 0-7734-5239-7
This is the first full-length study to address the complex issues involved in Cather’s relationship to France and to the many French writers (Zola, Flaubert, Sand, France, Mérimée, Loti, etc.) that keep cropping up in her literary and journalistic output. The author traces the intellectual and artistic roots that nourished Cather’s writing and examines the dynamic relationship between American and French literatures.
