I was an English major in college and it irritated me that we read male writers from the 20s but no Cather.


It's odd that you should quote Joan Acocella on Cather, since her book was dedicated to degaying the woman. Or at least to vilifying anyone who wouldn't degay her. But I admit it's interesting to see how she's changed her tune. As far as I can tell, her new accusation -- that those critics who said Cather was lesbian assumed she lived a miserable life -- is just as false as its predecessors.
