  1. Author: Hope, Anthony (Anthony Hope Hawkins)
    Title: "The Indifference of the Miller of Hofbau"
    Date: 1896
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "Mr. Hawkins seems to cherish an author's usual fondness for his more unpopular works, for when he read from the Princess Osra stories, he selected the least liked and probably the least deserving, 'The Miller of Hofbau.'" Anthony Hope is the pseudonym of Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins; the story appears in his collection The Heart of Princess Osra.

    Date: 1896
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "Everyone in reading Mr. Hawkins' books feels that he has a peculiarly sure touch with his women.

  4. Author: Hope, Anthony (Anthony Hope Hawkins)
    Title: Rupert of Hentzau
    Date: 1898
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "So Anthony Hope has succumbed to the temptation of money and has written a sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda, the first installment of which appeared in the December McClure's. It starts out very well indeed; if I had not read The Prisoner of Zenda I should say the sequel was a downright good story, but having read the Prisoner I can only say that I greatly fear Mr. Hawkins will spoil a better story than he makes."

    Date: 1894

  7. Author: Hope, Anthony (Anthony Hope Hawkins)
    Title: The Prisoner of Zenda
    Date: 1894
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: Cather "was particularly fond of [Anthony] Hope's novel The Prisoner of Zenda, which sold more than 625,000 copies in 1894, and was successfully adapted for the stage." In a 1901 Courier article, Cather says he "might have done what he pleased with us eight years ago and made us all for a space prisoners of Zenda, has since done nothing much above the clever dilettante ...,"

  8. Author: Hope, Anthony (Anthony Hope Hawkins)
    Note Relating to Cather: In an 1895 Courier article, Cather writes: "We are growing too analytical ourselves, and we need young men like Rudyard Kipling and Anthony Hope, not because of the greatness of their talent, but because of the sincerity of their motive, because the atmosphere of their work is one in which men may love and work and fight and die like men." In an 1899 Leader article, Cather says his writing is animated by the spirit of the "pseudo-romance."
