    Atherton, Gertrude

  1. Author: Atherton, Gertrude
    Title: The Daughter of the Vine
    Date: 1899
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "Ah, we thought we had been punished enough for ever having countenanced the psychological novel, but our real punishment is now, when the ladies have taken up the war cry. I suppose that Mrs. Atherton, whose fervid pen once labored solely in the interests of love and longing, now loses sleep over character development and comparative values and unity of structure and all the rest of it."

  2. Author: Atherton, Gertrude
    Title: The Doomswoman
    Date: 1892
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: It "was fairly good of its kind. True, it was a pretty bad kind, the kind that summer hotel ladies term 'light literature' and that schoolgirls keep hidden in their desks and weep over. Nevertheless it had some kind of coherent structure because it was spontaneous, and some sort of spirit because it was done without an ulterior purpose and was not an imitation."
